Hi Mick

 

Welcome to the forum!  To help you it would be useful for you to post an image or two and list the EXIF data from each shot as well.

I don't know what an egg shell effect is. The photo is about two stops overexposed and probably a bit out of focus. What else are we supposed to be seeing?

I have to agree with Robert here, I can't see what I would conceive as an eggshell effect:  there are definitely sharpness issues, whether camera movement of focus and it is a bit washed out too.

 

Is this just one (or a few images) or a common occurrence?

It wasn't a settings issue, although it looks like I agree. I have tried a different card and I think it maybe that was the problem. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

Me too!  I don't know if I totally buy your exif info either.  But anyway if true you may have a sticky shutter or a failing shutter.

Interesting subject, too, why?  It will be difficult to get a great exposure shooting scenes like that.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.
