Have you ever noticed that there is a blaring difference between a regular photos noise and an HDR photos noise?  The tone mapping process compounds the noise in all of the original exposures in such a way that the noise starts to become a part of the detail in the image.  Topaz DeNoise does an excellent job of combating this HDR noise.

In this tutorial I will show you one of my favorite presets in Topaz DeNoise that helps cut down the HDR noise to a minimum.  I will also show you a sweet way to sharpen the image up.

Feel free to download the Topaz Preset and Sharpening Actions seen in this tutorial.

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.
