mmm... it could be compression too. D&B could enhance JPG compression that didn't show in the original - but I'm sure you wouldn't be retouching a JPG now, would you?

Looks like noise to me. This any better for you? Very light Neat Image.

Salomon,

I'm a bit lazy myself, tho I primarily use shortcuts to get things looking good in a short time frame. I scan high volume and do basic exposure and color adjustments – Neat Image is my bread & butter noise and texture reducer.

Noise Ninja is VERY good as well, but I settled on NI after reading reviews such as this:

I also admire the work of this photographer who uses it in her workflow.

As well, Michael Reichman at Luminous Landscape gave it two thumbs up. On this subject, his recommendation was good enough for me.
