The 'strange curves' on the brick wall are an effect called 'Moire' I believe.

It is to do with opposing resolutions creating strange patterns.

Its not a problem with your equipment just a strange quirk to do with resolution and light physics .

I think 'Lifeforms' is correct. If you view on your computer and re-size the image, does the pattern change? It should.

Yes correct when i zoom to about 50 %, the effect is gone and the brick wall looks sharp as it should.

Thanks all of you guys for clearing that up
