Nice little picture Trevor. When you click on the image there is an almost textured look, rather like the back of hardboard. I had this not so long ago when I processed an image, its not the camera at fault but something we did in Photoshop! Try processing through a raw file, if you took one. It may be the sensor showing up due to you cropping too heavily.
Tip number 2 Trevor! I always use a technique called Expose To The Right (ETTR). ETTR is essentially deliberately over-exposing without blowing highlights so you need to become best friends with the histogram - principle simply is that the more photons you get hitting the sensor the more detail you're capturing and any over-exposed bits can then be simply handled in Photoshop/Lightroom using the recovery tab. Additionally over-exposing reduces the amount of 'noise' in any image - the more the camera has to guess, which with normal/under-exposure it has to, the more noise you generate. Takes a bit of getting used to and the pics look naff on the camera screen (that's why you need to trust the histogram) but for me it works a treat!
Thank you so much both, realy appreciate your constructive comments.
Keep playing with your camera settings Trevor its all good fun I like the image :o)
