I concur with sdebrango. To make it easier and to minimize damage to the top, line the pan with parchment to make a lengthwise sling, leaving 2-3" overhang on both sides. Very gently lift it from the pan using the sling and then (slowly, carefully), peel back the paper as you gently put the loaf on a wire rack. ;o)

I would take it out of the pan to cool, clean the baking pan and once its cooled put the cake back in (loaves are so easy to handle) for presentation purposes. That's what I would do, maybe the experts can weigh in on whether it's feasible to let cool in the pan.
