It's banding. There's a big potential for banding to be created when you edit color/exposure of an 8bit8-bit (jpeg) file... especially in dark areas as there is already a lack of color/information in those areas.

There is also the potential for banding when an image is resized or viewed at a size smaller than 100% due to compression.

And there is also the potential that the banding you are seeing is due to a monitor/gamma limitation and it isn't actually in the image.

The common/quick method for eliminating banding is to add noise to those areas.

I get a 404 error with the NEF link...
