Default Can't see the oversharpening

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=707092&key=0

Noise and sharpening issues will always be my downfall, because I almost never seen them in my work.

Thanks for the help!

The diagonal parts of the hand rails? Maybe in the foliage on the left 1/3 of the photo too. Nice photo though. Hope you can correct it.

Notice the jagged look on the rails beside the lead locomotive? And the handrails look a little jagged also. That will indicate oversharpening.
Try using a .3 radius and <70% strength on the final sharpening.
Nice pic!

The part that jumped out at me was the back of each loco on the radiator. Have you tried a B&W conversion on the shot?

Joe, I didn't. But I think you're onto something! BW conversion does look pretty cool.

Thanks Joe. I never thought about B&W for this shot.
