We consider a variational approach to the problem of recovering a missing or damaged part of an image. Representing the (grey) image by a scalar function $u$, the energy to be minimized is $$ \int
\nabla u
{\rm div\,}\left(\frac{\nabla u}{
\nabla u
}\right)p\,dx $$ This energy takes into account the perimeter and the $L^p$ norm of the mean curvature of the level sets of $u$.
