Default Compression?

Same cameras, Canon 6D & 7D, & same processing as all my photos that have made it into the database so why am I all of a sudden getting this rejection:

Too Much Compression: Saving your image with too much JPEG compression has caused the image to become very pixelated. This can often be accompanied by noticeable blotches in the sky. Try saving your image at your photo editor's highest image quality setting.

I shoot in RAW, process in Lightroom & I do save my images at the highest setting. I'm not seeing the pixelation so someone point it out.

Thanks for any help.

I can barely see it in the third one but it's nowhere near enough to warrant a rejection, in my opinion. The 2nd one is soft and the first one appears to be leaning to the right.

My question is: what is your editing process? You say you're shooting in RAW, however these images look like camera processed JPEGs.

To my eye, the first and third are grainy (the third one quite badly so) and the second one is very noticeably soft. Definitely something that shouldn't be happening with your setup. Perhaps it's your resizing procedure?
