I think the banding is due to the limitations of save-for-web jpgs. Unless you fry a channel when shooting RAW, there should be no banding, at least not with 14 bits per channel. For 8-bit-per-channel jpgs aren't able to reproduce colors with such accuracy. It also could be the performance and calibration of the screen we're seeing. Clear skies are a torture-test in that respect!

It can be due to the re sizing and also, as you say, to the calibration of the screen.

I checked the original full size files and could not see any visible banding. In actual fact the first image is the one that looks the best a part from that circular radiance around the setting son.

I am not an expert but I would call them banding...are they?
