Default Is this oversharpened?

Rejected for being oversharp:

To me the engines look good. I am thinking that the sides of the autorack cars are giving the appearance of being oversharp. It appears to be a moir'e pattern issue but I would like some other thoughts.

Should I appeal or just re-edit and just selective sharpen the engines?

I am leaning towards an appeal since I have to pack for a railfan trip to the PRB this week!

Way oversharpened - look at the border of the foliage upper left.

That's the first thing I noticed, too. When I'm doing my own sharpening, trees and bushes are a very good indicator if something is too sharp. Ballast, as well. Another thing I noted with your shot is the edges of the auto racks are jaggy. So, yes, you're getting jaggy with it.

Looks like a slightly out of focus shot you tried to save by sharpening alot. That tactic rarely yields useable results, I know from experience!

Thanks Janusz! I looked again and I can see what you are saying. I just did an unsharp mask on the whole image after reducing. I will redo when I get a chance.

I guess they didn't stop the train so it was blurry and they tried to correct it by sharpening.....been there.
