Beautiful Composition Joe. As you may quite already know but I will repeat it again, all images worthy of POTD honor are judged on First appearance, then Full Screen Mode (which is always the BEST) then Zoom Mode. Go's without saying this image surely qualifies. With that said the First Two screening look fine. It's the Third (ZOOM) that shows flaws. These flaws are NOISE and small dark artifacts. I downloaded this image from FULL SCREEN MODE and ran it in Topaz Studio 2 using Topaz A I CLEAR. Took only 10 seconds. Then, while still in A I CLEAR clicked on Denoise MEDIUM bottom right of same program and overall image was much clearer, cleaner and all Noise and artifacts were removed from sky. Just saying although your image is quite good it could be improved to a WOW image in just seconds. Thanks for sharing.

Ed, Thanks for your comments. I was in two minds last night about whether to put the picture into AI Clear and use Denoise. In the end I put the image on 3:1 in Lightroom and played around with the noise reduction until I thought it was OK. Obviously not as good as AI Clear though.

@josephc , It is hard to beat the results of A I Clear and the total time to use it is under a minute. There were flaws in all post yesterday in one way or another but yours had the least noticeable so Congrats on POTD.
