    thanks.

    as I expected, the images are a bit noisy with not having a larger Dslr sensor. I am considering a noise removal tool. I have tried the demo of NeatImage and have been impressed when treating patches of this image. The Baltic brickwork is cleaned up nicely. Might make a purchase for improving images like this !

    Anyone have experience of any of the free noise tools ? such as AbsoluteDeNoiser ?

    Nice shot Geordie Jester. Like how you've captured the dark blue sky.

    I use Noiseware Community edition. It is a free download and works really well with my images. Can't help with AbsoluteDeNoiser as I've never needed it.

    Thanks for that. I will have a go of Noiseware.

    The dark blue sky is just timing really......waiting until there is only a little bit light left in the sky to give a bit of colour.

    Great shot, you've done well to keep it sharp on a long exposure. You can be rock stready but that bridge bounces like heck!

    hehe....you are right there! I took a few there just hoping I picked a less bouncy spell, and a few more just off the bridge on terra firma!

    The clear blue skies at sunset had attracted loads of photographers down to the quayside. There were a handful up by the Sage shooting towards the Tyne bridge and sunset, then four or five more dotted around all with tripods.

    Noiseware is very impressive. I am getting some nice results with it.

    Probably need to upgrade to the pukka version now though as the demo one not being a plug-in results in an extra save/compression (jpg'ing a jpg)
