Those issues are caused by sharpening applied to a "grainy" ISO1600 shot (probably in camera). There is no need to shoot landscapes at 1/3200s. You would have done much better shooting at 1/400s and ISO200 which would have given you a much cleaner shot.


Naturally. I only want to add that that for these kind of shots (and for most others actually), the P mode with Auto ISO works absolutely wonderfully. Sure, you can't learn how to set the exposure if you are going to use it all the time, but even if you do learn, you will use the P mode afterwords. I know everything about exposure -- I shoot a fully manual film rangefinder most of the time -- but I shoot most of my digital cameras on P. I only switch to A for portraits and to S when I want to blur the motion in bright light. My ISO stays most of the time on Auto too with a limit set depending on the actual lighting conditions. What I'm trying to say is, don't play with the ISO setting if you don't have to. It brings nothing but trouble, as this picture clearly demonstrates. Auto ISO is your true friend
