I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. I do not think this fits in the Astrophotography forum as I am only shooting stars and not using any specialiazed equipment such as a telescope etc.

I have been experimenting with night landscape photography and watched a good video by Kamil Tamiola on Vimeo. Kamil made the cover of National Geographic with one of his night landscape mountain shots.

In the video at about 11:13 he mentions turning noise reduction off in the camera as it does not work well for night photography. I am using a D7000 and post processing in LR4. Can anyone tell me if I should switch off both the Long Exposure Noise reduction and the High ISO noise reduction when shooting exposures of 20 to 30 seconds at night with ISO between 1600 and 3200. Also using LR4 do I just use the Detail settings of Luminance and sharpening to reduce the noise or are there some other settings that will help?
