So yeah to get the topic straight, I just want you guys to review this and give constructive criticism. The RAW is WSJ 2013-14.
I know this is no where near perfect, and I followed this from one of the guides in the Tutorials and Workshops section.
(And excuse the ugly typesetting fonts - it will be fixed later so just lets focus on the clean. And also I know I need to dodge/burn a few places)
Would this pass for MQ? (After few dodging and burn)
It's somewhere between LQ and MQ, I'd say.
The grays lost their pattern and the lines are way too sharp. Although, given the raw (if that's its full size), it's not bad.
Oh, and I'd level it slightly more before using dodge/burn.
Here's an old video I made, showing how to easily check for leftover dirt/noise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4zR6ozc0WQ
Maybe, I will try it with a better res RAW next time..
I think the pattern is to small to even worry about.
I guess you used some kind of filter (denoise/surface blur?) which blurred out too many lines in the greys. and you left a lot of noise.
for this page you'd probably need to manually remove most of the noise.
This is a workable raw, just one that's a pain.

Yes, I did use both denoise and surface blur, I'll use speedscan's tutorial next time to see if things do get improved.
