Default Well, it was bound to happen eventually

I have never had an eye for sharpening, so I can't say whether these rejections are legit or not. But I find it hilarious that the same photo got an oversharpened rejection, followed by an undersharpened rejection, possibly with the same screener.

I had a feeling something like this would happen eventually. For the record, the first (oversharpened) rejection I had sharpening in iPhoto at about 55/100, on the second (undersharpened) rejection about 40/100.

Might be just this laptop I'm using but both look soft to me. First reject may have been a wrong button selection...

I tried sharpening and reverting a few times. The train looks better, but mild "jagginess" appears on the bridge at left. Perhaps more sharpening before resizing down would help?

I really like your photos from the canal area. My wife and I rented bikes near the old town and road the trail(I guess somewhat in this area) and continued west through some park area finding a little local place to eat.

Anyway, I have had back to back over and under rejections and it is very frustrating. The bridge on the left does seem to have some problem but not sure it is from sharpening or from some shadow/highlight processing which also can affect edges.

Also hard for me to judge but maybe best just to let it sit for a while and then start over again?? I have learned to sharpen as the final step.??

Looks oversharpened with a touch of out of focus to me.

I have no interest in resubmitting this, just thought I'd share over followed by undersharpened rejections!

You may be onto something, when I zoom in quite a bit it does look just a touch out of focus.
