DxO Pure Raw empirical test

This photo is a ‘before-and-after’ merge of a picture I took during the premiere of Cavalleria Rusticana at Teatro Marrucino, processed with DxO’s Pure Raw.

As an empirical test, it has no specific goal but to provide a real-life example of how the software works.
Overall, the results are reasonably good; however software’s ‘heavy hand’ is apparent in the visibly smudged areas.

Pure Raw can not work miracles, although it proved to be a valuable tool to rescue photos shot in poor light.
