I am attaching two versions of the same photo - untouched RAW (size reduced) and processed (size reduced).
The processed photo, on size reduction, has BAD banding in the dark areas. My processing values a (Camera Raw) are:
Contast +34, Vibrance +30, Saturation +8. Blue Saturation +24. Also brightened the eyes.
Rest are ALL untouched.
What am I doing wrong to get the banding? Hope my camera is able to handle such non severe processing??
I hope it is me and not the camera. If it is the camera, I do not know what to say.
