I'm going through a wee B&W phase again and could almost go B&W exclusively... that's not saying I'm any good at B&W it's just it rocks and now when I think about it that's where photography started.

This is just a test shot for posting on a forum showing problems I'm having with a feathered brush used on a mask layer. This has been exaggerated to enable viewers to see the problem easily.

On Gimp if I duplicate the background layer, then alter the new layer on curves for example, then add a mask layer and use a large feathered brush at any opacity with zero hardness on the brush, it does reveal the layer below where used but leaves these concentric circles. Obviously the more the brush is used the more anomalies that are left behind. Although not very noticeable at low magnification they are still there and would probably show up on prints I assume. Does anyone know what if anything am I doing wrong as this could be effecting a large proportion of my work. Also it is more noticeable on B&W work than on colour.

Or in my Sunday voice snow.. shows how far behind I am when this was taken a couple of weeks ago.
