I think I'm going to start editing my RAW files for some noise reduction before I turn them into HDRs.

Do you use Photomatix? If so, I have seen far less noise since I started creating the RAW HDR image in CS5, saving it as a .tiff, and tone mapping in Photomatix.

Nice...makes me wish I went and explored more when I was at Boot Camp. Never would have seen it at night though.

Yeah, I think I'm going to go that route next time I do long exposure HDR stuff.

This doesn't actually create a RAW HDR image by saving as a .tiff. In the Photoshop window where the bracketed images are merged, select the 32 bit option before clicking on OK. When the file is back in Photoshop, save it as a radiance file (.hdr). Now you can open the hdr file in photomatix for tonemapping.

Kwirk, my apologies, I forgot to comment on your photo. I really like it. Does the image seem too warm to you? I've tried doing a quick adjustment to the w/b and it seems to look a bit better to me, although it is cooler.

Like _aravena, my only exposure to Chicago was during my 12 hour liberty while in boot camp at Great Lakes in 1963. I spent the day watching a movie.

Ah, didn't know that. Thanks for the tip...learn something new everyday. :)
