Removing noise from a digital image is a challenging problem. Application of Gaussian Scale Mixtures (GSM) in the wavelet domain has been reported to be one of the most effective denoising algorithms, published to date. In this paper we investigate the impact of overcomplete wavelet image representations on the GSM image denoising algorithm. We explore the desirable local characteristics of wavelet coefficients that can enhance the efficiency of GSM denoising and based on the findings, we devise an improved over-complete pyramid representation to enhance the GSM denoising performance. We present the experimental denoising results using the proposed pyramid representation, and they outperform state-of-the-art GSM denoising results reported in the literature. © 2011 IEEE.
