I'll bet 99+% of viewers wouldn't see a noise problem with this photo.

Wish the screen team would disclose how they view submissions!
(As in: what devices zoomed in how much?)

Interesting, the ISO is 100 and exposure seems normal for a daytime photo so not sure why there would be any noise. There is some weathering on cab, not sure if a quick look was a mistake??? but that does not seem very likely. Anyway, looks very clean to me.

I do not see it. And also, I'm surprised this set is being retired. Has it really been that long?

Another fine screening job. Seeing things no one else sees. Maybe a mental health appointment might be appropriate for some if not all of the screeners.

My NEC snow shots are being dinged for "noise"...

This one, which I really like thanks to the big fluffy snow flakes got in on an appeal:

And then this one - which really does look noisy, but that's what you get when you shoot in snow that is in the process of turning to ice and sleet.

And now a photo of an Acela at night captured doing well over 100 mph - fingers crossed, I like the shot - even and because the snow flakes are frozen in the headlight beam.

As for your shot - I do not see the noise. You could always select the sky and blur it or use noise reduction - would seem easy enough, or maybe adjust the contrast as it does seem a bit opaque /lacking in contrast.

Actually - a bit more "pop" can be added by going to "Levels" instead of contrast and adjust the "Target Colors & Clipping". Bump "Highlights" to 1%. I think the default is 0.1%.
