Is there hope for this picture?

Hey DT photo savants! I took a cell phone picture (in bad lighting and from a distance) this morning of Mason frolicking in the snow. It's craptastic, but I love his expression in.

I was hoping one of you kind folk could take a stab at making this clearer: (Or bigger, or brighter....)




TIA!

Absolutely there is hope for it! There's actually alot of detail in the darker areas which is unusual for a phone picture, and you're right his expression is priceless Here you go

Nice picture!

Please do me a favour by asking the snow to stay out of the north. Particularly, Ontario.

Thanks!

Done.













Also: Don't go bigger with an image. Making them larger causes them to pixellate due to not having data for that size.

Roses are grey,
Violets are grey,
Everything is grey,
Because Jaina's a dog.
