This paper addresses image denoising problem based on minimization of an appropriate energy function. This energy function consists of data fidelity term and targeted smoothness term. In this paper, a local optimal balance between these two terms is considered. This strategy leads to image invariant denoising and also preserves edges simultaneously. Experimental results verify the performance of this approach.
