The detail looks great but there is a very strange grid over it that is spoiling it. Did you use Topaz in the processing? If so it's better not to as I think it is adding this grid artifact.

I did use Topaz Denoise AI and after many tests and experiments on previous data, I've noticed that this software doesn't produce anything new if there isn't something in the data. In that context, all methods of processing produces artifacts so to me there is absolutely no reason not to try this new way of representation

I'm specifically referring to the grid pattern which I've pushed the contrast to show here - that grid is, I believe, from the denoise AI. It gives the impression of sharp data where each dark line crosses another but it's the AI that has created it.
