Actually, from what it looks like, you've got ok temper (although it's very hard to trouble shoot over the internet from a photo..). What it appears to be to me is a thermal 'ringing' caused by differences in the temperature of your chocolate itself, as well as with the mould. Try this: after your last temperature increase step in the tempering process, let the chocolate sit for 5 minutes, stirring it occasionally, prior to moulding. Also, warm your mould up slightly, say so that it's temperature is between 80-85F. Don't go higher than that, or you will detemper the surface of your chocolate...
