Yes, the noise in 2 skies needs addressing - I don't know why I left those 2 as they are. I've been trying a different workflow using VSCO presets, and I've been a bit all over the place getting comfortable with it. The noise in the tree scene (that upside down deformed spiral staircase) and the Lincoln Center plaza is noise I can tolerate, though. I went too far with NR in the shot under the overpass (2nd shot, I believe). The first shot was mainly a comparison with the 20/1.7 - the shadows were almost irrecoverably deep, and in raising them I was looking for banding. This passed that test.

Be careful with the noise reduction. The noisy skies in the scene with the upside down staircase and the one with the bridges are not tolerable, they are amazing.
