Extreme photo rescue (share yours)

last night I was called upon to shoot some photos of a band that my friend plays in. I told him I didn't have any fast lenses and didn't do flash photography and couldn't guarantee that I'd be able to get anything useable. He said it didn't matter, they were just going to hang out for awhile anyways, so I should just come along and shoot some candids of the guys hanging out having a beer. I thought I had the camera set to auto ISO, so I don't know why this one is at ISO1600. I couldn't see anything through the optical viewfinder. This was in a dark alleyway between two buildings. There was a small desk lamp on an end table inside an apartment which probably had a 60 watt bulb in it, and that was being filtered through some half closed blinds and filthy, grimey windows. This was what I got SOOC......

Of course, now that it's bright enough to see what is going on, we can see that my friend's face is pretty obscured by Todd's bandaged hand, but it went form no photo to something that is semi-useable. Share an extreme photo rescue of yours.

Was bracketing for an HDR, pulled this from a single image on the D800e.


Sorry about posting from a dslr. But missed posting here since I've been using larger cameras nowadays.
