Sorry to Rock, BillyGoatGruff and Mrswoolybill but I have reloaded this image.

Thanks for the comments about the noise. I have run it through Noise Ninja which I hope has improved it

V1 is improved, and thanks for V2 I do enjoy it. Still puzzled by the Exif...

Much better, John!
I'm leaning towards V1, despite being a mono fan. The subtlety of the colour is lovely.

It's still quite noisy, but I'd expect that from ISO 1600, and, as it's primarily luminance noise, it doesn't detract so much; in fact it actually adds a certain something!
My guess is that this was hand-held, but I think that you could have used ISO 400 or even 200 and opened up the aperture to alllow a reasonable hand-held speed. ISO 200, f/8 would probably have retained the depth you needed and still allowed hand holding, I suspect.
