Unwanted srange grainy, almost paint like effect in my photos.

This is a somewhat new, and frustrating occurrence I've been noticing in my photos when zooming in on them in Lightroom.  It is almost like the image is smeared slightly or just not focused properly, noisy or all the above.  I'm shooting with a Canon T5i on a tripod, using a 2 second timer to avoid camera shake and low ISO settings. In an example I'll attach below, it is shot at 3.2 sec, at f1.8, ISO 100, 24mm EFS Prime lens and a tiffen variable nd filter attached.  I'm also shooting in raw format.  This is driving me crazy.  Any help, advise, input or thoughts of any kind on the matter would be greatly appreciated

Same issue with the image below.  Also shot with the T5i, same 24mm lens, but no ND filter this time.  Still on a tripod of course, with a timer and settings are 130sec, at f22 ISO 200
