OK, since some of you didn't like the bridge framing Mt Rainier... I went back there today and shot a couple different versions.
What do you think?
Well the picture taken with the compact i don't like as the detail is no good but why would you shoot at ISO 400?
the pentax shot is better but the detail is washed out in the background.
Oh BOY!:? I found out why the Nikon shot was grainy! I was in a hurry as I was blocking cars where I had parked the Subaru and wasn't paying attention to the ISO on either camera. I had put both cameras on Program and was firing away. For some reason the Nikon was shooting at 400 ISO! and the Pentax at 200 ISO. So this was a unfair comparison and both shots could have been improved shooting at 64 or 100 ISO.
Man... am I embarrassed.

Now I gotta wait for another sunny day and reshoot as it is raining now and for the next few days.

Lol no need to be embarrased, it only shows that there was a mistake setting up camera and you explained so we shall wait for the next sunny day
