Sunset in Minnesota
Makes Minnesota look very appealing!  Nice job... My only other comment would be regarding more of a rule of thirds composition.  Otherwise, it's an absolutely beautiful image!

+1.  I am less than impressed with the noise on my 5DIII. I find the 22mpx enough for me, but expected far better low noise performance. Using Topaz denoise doesn't help much either. OTOH the problem is probably behind the Camera.
Cheers

Here is an example 1/4000s, 400mm F5.6 ISO4000, its easy to see in the two squares. Now thats
at ISO4000, so obviously at anything higher its worse. In this case when I tried Topaz denoise
(the example here is the BEFORE state) it worked pretty well.

So, is this too much noise? And its not in the darkest parts

CHeers
Those settings don't make any sense to me... and why is the bird & his wing not frozen at 1/4000?  And not in focus at f/5.6 with a focal length of 400mm?   

I may be wrong, but shooting this at 1/1600th, f/3/2 since it's 400mm focal length, and iso 100 - 400 depending on time of day,  seems like could be a quick and easy solution to take care of all your noise problems, to me anyway...   At ISO 4000, you're just asking for issues IMHO... No offense intended... :)
I like both sharpness and ...noise (It does not seem bad for ISO4000, but that's me). However, is this a screen capture at 100% from DPP? DPP uses the jpg file for high quality view as far as I have found so actually the noise is higher in raw.
Actually, I totally agree with you about the noise... looking at it at normal sizes, the noise won't even be an issue.  The image doesn't seem sharp to me at all though.. perhaps it was handheld I suppose...

Lightroom 4 deals with the 5Dmk3 noise the best IMO
