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.
