To me it looks as though you have oversharpened this image. This is more than likely why the image appears so grainy, as Nathan said, it accentuates any noise in the picture and also puts a kind of halo or ghosting around the sharpend edges of detail like it seems to have done on the brickwork. If you are sharpening, click on the preview box turning it on and off so that you can judge if it is actually degrading the image, rather than enhancing it.You will need to go back to the original image to try this, it's not possible to take out the sharpening from this saved image.
Hi William, the first thing that I see when I look at your image is the frame. When I started on this site I didn't use frames at all, but was told to put a small boarder around to hold the image together. I have done that with most pics I have uploaded since and agreed that this did work well. I think the size of your boarder detracts from the image. Try reducing this by 50% I'm sure you will see a difference. Also, from my watercolour days, I was taught to use a mount, of a complementery colour. Try using the dropper tool to pick up a colour from the image, one of the greys from the roofs would work I think.
