Well, this one is very bright. I decided to stop collecting at this point. I used the RGB as the color (photometrically corrected) and the very strong and complex HA signal as the L. There was not much effect of HDR on the HA.

I denoised it with Topaz Denoise and that helped a lot. I used the default settings. Probably would be smoother with more images, but there are a lot of objects out there and not much time....

So the colors are correct as is... not manipulated in 3D LUT just saturated a bit.
