Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Basically I've been trying to work on image quality of my hdrs. Sometimes I feel that I introduce a lot of noise to the image after tonemapping and post processing. How does the overall image quality of these two pictures seem to you guys? My hdr processing is done in photomatix and usually post processed slightly in photoshop, topaz, and light room for final touches.

This first image I used bracketed shots mainly to capture as many veins and details as possible in the petals, while still trying to keep the center of the in focus flower tack sharp.

This second image really isnt the most interesting picture, its just the view from my balcony. With this shot I wanted to practice keeping my hdr processing to a natural with a slight punch feel. I really tried for a sky that was not too over done and basically noise free. For this shot I had a 6 stop nd stacked with a cp.

So how'd I do? Thanks in advance for any tips!
Overall very nice shots. I love the macro of the petals. Beautiful shot. As for the view out of the balcony, only thing I notice is that the temperature is a bit warm. Perhaps cooling it down a bit would help? Some ghosting of the cars on the freeway, but really can't control that, besides it adds perspective to the photo. So that is nice.
