Here is the crop you asked for, it was a little over 600 x 600, I did not sharpen it.

i have a D70 and haven't had a problem....i did read that the meter can be off by a stop....but i usually do a lot of bracketting so i haven't had a problem there either. i'm lucky i can resize my¬* photos as it is so i'll leave that to the experts here to figure out!

hm... it appears to be your resizing methods.. try resizing one, but instead of constraining the size, constrain the pixels and shoot for about 700 pixels on the longe end.. don't sharpen on this test image.. leave it on scale style, contstrain proportions and bicubic resampling..

Well the first thing I notice is lots of noise and not very sharp to begin with. I just wanted to see the crop so we knew what you started with. My guess is all that noise is being sharpened during your processing and being intensified. This in addition to the initial quality of the image is giving the image that look. I may be completely off though

After you try Dustins suggestion, if that does not seem to work, take test shot of a well lit area (different scene). Do your processing as you normally would and lets see if that shot appears to have the same look.

i think the sharpening of the noise is responsible for the overall artifacty look.. but the jagged diagnal lines i think are the result of something else?

I think Brian had it right, it doesn't look like you're interpolating properly. I was able to reproduce the jaggy look of your resized image by resizing with "nearest neighbor" after "resample image:". Make sure you're using Bicubic. If it's defaulting to nearest neighbor, you might want to see if you can change that in your preferences.

Also, I wasn't clear on whether you're using Photoshop or something else. If you don't solve your problem, please clearly define every step you take and with what software.

ahh... corpsy is right... if you have it on nearest neighbor that will give your jaggedies on the diagnols..

Hello Dustin,

Here is the picture the way you said to do it, but what is scale style?
