This is the second shot from the Sony SLT-A99 and, as you'll see if you've already taken a look at the original, the processing was quite extensive: involving a change to the overall tone and a massive increase in contrast, particularly along the horizon (the curve was almost vertical for this section). It did need some noise reduction – there's no way you can expect to make such radical changes without introducing some noise – but on the whole I was very impressed with the quality of data in the original file.

As always, let me know what you think
