I went a little crazy on this photograph but it ended up looking pretty good. This shot of Green Cay Nature Preserve was a little dark so it ended up with some noise. Topaz Denoise did a great job getting rid of the noise at the end of my processing. Not so sure which shot I like better of Green Cay. Between this HDR shot and the other one of Green Cay it’s a toss up.
