Even though I was shooting at ISO 100, I was still seeing a bit of noise in the shadows and bridge and didn't want to do noise reduction to the entire photo which can reduce sharpness. I used some image averaging on this shot by taking 7 exposures and averaging them which greatly reduces noise while preserving sharpness as well as creating a longer looking exposure.
