Re: Deep Prime + Neat Image

I wondered about that, The woodpecker shot doesn't look like it's been through DeepPrime as there's a lot of noise in the background. It cleans up nicely in Topaz DeNoise AI leaving very little evidence of any banding. This is weird because most folks say DxO DeepPrime is better than Topaz Denoise.

It does seem a bit odd, I would also expect DXO to have done better on the background. I found with Topaz that it was softening some of the detail in general but also softening the outline of the bird, including feather detail. Certainly cleaned up the background on Woody above though, stunning images as always
