It looks pretty good to me. You need to worry when the banding is across the whole image. If you are still concerned and have a flickr pro account you can upload a full size jpeg assuming that it is under 20mb and link to that. However, the advice about sharpening is well worth practising.

I dont need to crop the image badly at all. This was just a test shot but I see this noise often. I guess I look on the internet and see portraits that are so crisp I cant believe it;

But are you looking at full resolution images that are zoomed into 100% (like the crop you posted)?

Or (more likely) are you looking at images that have been re-sized for web viewing (like your first image)?

Doing even a simple 50% reduction can perform visual miracles on "noisy" images. Re-sizing for web viewing will do even more for averaging out the random noise.

Well, the shot is still (assuming no wind) so use a tripod and go down to ISO 100 if you need no noise. Otherwise I think it looks just fine. I doubt you'll see any noise in printing with that or a similar shot
