Thanks for your feedback @BosseBe :)
I did crop a bit from the right a small bit from the top (I like the hight) and took a little blue out.
I do not see the banding in Photoshop though ???


Why not try to crop a bit from the right hand side, to place a line in the bottom corner on each side?
Edit: While I am in criticism mode, why not lose a bit of the sky, it doesn't contribute to the picture IMO.
Also I see some banding in the sky, maybe you have processed it to hard?
Just my 2c.

The banding usually shows up in the JPG, you go from what, 14 -16 bits of raw colour depth to 8 bits I think so a lot of shades are lost.
There are tendencies of banding in the sky, but it may well be that this is as good as you can get, as far as I know there is no universal remedy for banding, all you ca do is minimize the processing.
(It might be my monitor that is the culprit!)

I took the freedom to download your first picture to show what I meant by placing the lines in the corner, it is much easier to show!

Two shots, the first taken with regular P mode on my Fujifilm X30 compact, the second taken with its low-light mode. Both straight out of camera JPEGs. I would say the actual colours were somewhere between the two. Which do you prefer?

I like the second for preference, but can envisage your comment re midway.
Watched some evening skies here last few days and the observations don't always match the image.
