    lol 2923 just jumps out at me both times.

    Wow NN really made it quite, smooth. Really took care of that chroma noise.

    I made a HDR from a single RAW file then ran applied the effect. Then used NN three times. This is the first time I tried to run it through NN more than once. I think it did a great job.

    Thanks

    Sorry Frank, I don't get it.
    You apply a filter to accentuate the detail and then use Noise Ninja x3 to remove it.
    Any noise reduction (including in camera) reduces detail as well as noise; in this case the detail is completely gone. The Tarmac road is now a blur as are the wheels. Same with the metal around the nozzles and stuff half way down the truck.
    Like I said, I don't get it, I must be missing something.

    I just thought there was too much noise in the image. I do see what you are saying. I guess everybody has a different way of looking at things. So you don't think there is too much noise in the first image?? Or do you think I should have ran NN only once.
    Thanks for the comments

    i like it Frank. all these HDRish effects are an acquired taste. some people want to see the details preserved others like the CGI movie effect.

    I think the advice is to run NN before you do anything else.
    Having got the noise to acceptable proportions you can start the PP.
    Lucis is going to accentuate noise so you may have to go in a bit harder with NN, but then again some images benefit from noise.
