After nearly 2 years of travels, my camping and travels are being put on hold as I return to Long Island for cataract surgery and to visit for a couple of months. For a while there will be no camping in Death Valley, in Glacier or other national parks. In fact I am down to the last couple of days of "camping". Tonight at a Flying J and tomorrow probably a Walmart or maybe a Cabelas parking lot.
I tried to document this and quickly realized I needed ISO 6400 for a quick handheld pano. I rarely shoot beyond ISO 400 so I don't have a clue about noise reduction. For the first image I applied both Photoshop noise reduction and also two available Topaz Adjust denoise settings. For the second attempt I used noise reduction settings before opening with ACR. The ACR noise reduction seems better than the combination of the other attempts. What is the best software and settings for heavy duty noise reduction? Can I get by with my existing software or would I be better off with something else?
