It's out of focus.
Hmm I think image got degraded when I uploaded
Thanks will look at it again
Also banding and noise.
Thank you. So how can I reduce banding? Is it something you take care while shooting or in post production?
Appreciate all the help.
Google. heres a few to start. A real PAIN.

Excellent video. Very informative. So is there a way to avoid banding while shooting or is it inherent part of photography?
Very good question, I basically Only answer stuff that I've used or done. But I don't know. Many years ago I used to get banding In Studio Grey backgrounds and it looked Like a very Light red Pigment. I made copies and sent it to a friend that was a Very smart Adobe engineer , His answer was "Photoshop doesn't like certain greys" I thought that was the strangest answer I ever heard. I asked every guru I could find, No One had an answer. I know this doesn't answer your question, I haven't seen banding in the 100,000 or so Pictures since then so Im sorry. Im Lost as to .... Is it in camera or not. It is not Inherent, I do know that. if it was ...in 11 years this question would have come up More. I think...It's over processing.And the sensor is overloaded. Noise is99% a exposure problem. Back when Digital was new it was extremely common and was crappy sensors.. Not now. Continue googling and maybe someone who has figured this out can come in and help Ya. Sorry.
I haven't watched the video yet, but does it really take him 22 minutes to show how to fix banding?
Thanks Rinder, will keep searching and try to figure it out. @Darla, he is actually showing how to identify or you can say how to see more clearly banding in photo by using curves layer. Showed two different methods of reducing banding. One of them was via adding noise and other was by way of using splatter filter in photoshop.
I'm not sure if it might help you, but here's an interesting fact: It is impossible for a RAW file to contain banding.

if you only have LR, I wonder if reducing clarity would help deal with banding. In fact, any filter that allows you to increase detail (structure, clarity) will also allow you to reduce it and thereby deal with banding. However, you might also compromise focus.
Will definitely try and reduce clarity and check it out. Thanks
