Re: EOSHQ, You are pretty darn good at that

I share your opinion of Topaz DeNoise. One of the best ways to destroy an image I can think of. However, it does work well with files that just need a little cleanup. I bought their entire lineup and only use two of their modules with moderation. Live and learn

Schwany, thank you for the kind words. I have spent a lot of money, time, and effort learning how to post process photos and now consider myself a self-taught expert.

Through much effort of trials and testing I have used every major noise reduction software plug-in as well as Canon DPP and ACR 6 and 7 and consider these as excellent.

Adobe Camera Raw 6 and 7
Neat Image
Noise Ninja
Dfine 2

Of these, Dfine is the only one that can actually remove banding. The others are just as good or better at noise reduction alone. I don't know how to rank them, they are all good in their own way. BTW, I do not care for Topaz Denoise 5 at all.
