    Excellent conditions when we arrived. Taken on a Canon 5D Mk1, 28mm -105mm lens. 1/2000th at f10 Dunstanburgh Castle. October.jpg

    2,000th at f10? Must have been quite underexposed and you lightened it?

    I hadn't noticed that. Must have some very bright sky in the original frame. The 5D was quite clean at 100 ISO even if lifted a couple of stops. Maybe it is an "added grain" conversion profile?

    It was very very bright, but I did process it to darken the sky and I have noticed before when cutting the blue slider that it can cause noise.

    that would explain it. I find the same thing - over enthusiastic darkening of the sky does tend to cause artefacts and odd tonal banding. Sometimes it's possible to smooth it out if it's not too far gone but usually I find I have to back it off a fair bit.

    If you want really dark sky it's better point away from the sun rather than toward it.

    I think the time of day kills it, this seams to be a popular location for landscape photography and as such there's some absolutely amazing shots out there. You really need good light in a location like this
