So here are three versions. As you see I chose a different composition. That turned out to be a really good thing since the main subject of my previous effort was the bridge lights and they never came on.

The first one shows the lighted signs the best but lacks the impact I look for in night shots.

The second one has more impact but also more blown out signs.

I toned down the reds in the first and second. I toned down the blues in the second.

The third one is after I ran the second one through Topaz DeNoise. I can clearly see a difference at 200% but not much at normal viewing. Your thoughts on that would be appreciated.
