Loving what I'm seeing so far. Experimented with this last night and was very pleased what I could do in 10 minutes:

Almost negated any need for HDR bracketing. I'm impressed. That said there's a few things I'd like to see still:

1. Noise Reduction shadow weighted areas. It would be nice to selectively control noise in only areas that really need it. Especially in terms of shadow recovery, only that area needs the noise reduction applied. It would be nice to have a dark/light slider to apply to that specific function.

2. Geometry Correction. This needs a serious update guys. It fixes a few things, but there's many other applications that do it way better (DxO Optics for one). It's a little too basic and could use better keystoning controls. I get better results from DxO Optics rather than use a Tilt-Shift lens.

3. The publish modules are still very antiquated and limited. No control over profile selection and still no way to update folders from previously published images. You guys need to really hire Jeffrey Friedl to do your modules. He's done amazing work with most of his plug-ins.

Good work so far with this version, looking forward to the release.
