"Posterization?" When what should be a smooth gradient comes out in as
distinct steps? That's happened to me. To fix it, I've tried selecting
and replacing the sky with one flat tone (a major pain); decreasing midtone
contrast; and also darkening or brightening the highlights and THEN
adjusting the contrast, which seemed to move the steps closer together so
the stripes aren't so obvious.

I'd love to hear a more efficient solution. (Aside from shooting with a red
filter, which does make the sky much flatter, but isn't always an option.)
