I took this around dusk hand held with a Canon S70 ... tried noise reduction with PSE4 but it's still pretty grainy. Any good Mac compatible noise reduction applications (that are relatively easy to use) that I might try?

Thanks in advance

G'day there,

just had a quick go at reducing some more noise using PSCS2, not sure if it is how you wanted it but tis up to you.

Must be something wrong with me, but I like the original better. Gives it character.

I was thinking more like the noise reduction took something away from the sky. I am not the best at this, my masking has a lot to be desired as this proves, just a quick and dirty, but I applied some noise reduction to the arc, and enhanced the contrast in the sky. It needs more work, but it gives you the idea.

I agree about the original, it gives it some character. The noise reduction in Photoshop CS2 is more powerfull that Elements but there are also some other alternatives. Noise Ninja (mentioned above) is great and works very well. I believe it's available as a stand alone version or a photoshop plug-in. http://www.picturecode.com/

fofa, I like what you did. Adds mystery.

Neat Image also works with the Mac and does a remarkable job.
