For a while I wasn't sure it wasn't too much as I'd used unsharp masking to sharpen (I usually use a lower level of adaptive sharpening), but looking at some shots I took near there yesterday it's there in those raw files as well as the underexposed original of this one. I think it's the lens and the conditions. I did bump the micro-contrast up in the processing, but not by much.
