So by this point I probably have you sold on this whole HDR thing, but what about that damn HDR Noise?  I like to call it HDN, High Dynamic Noise, and pardon my English it is a pain in the ass!  However, there are some methods for getting rid of it.  In this tutorial I discuss how to drastically reduce the noise in an image brought on by the compacting of noise from several brackets using Topaz DeNoise and the blur tool in Photoshop CS5.  Check out the before and after to see if this is something that interests you:

f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
