Looking at your original what I see in the sky is quantization due to inadequate number of digital levels to describe the gradual transition from darker to lighter. This can come about from enhancing the sky in post production. Of course, it could also be due to whatever DPR does to our photos in the gallery.

This was a common problem back when for pro video we only had 8 bit encoding. Pro video systems went to 10 bits to minimize the effect.
