Hey guys, this is one of my first posts into uploading photo on airnet. Can some of the veterans here shade some light about how to sharpen pictures properly. This photo was taken at the Asian Aerospace yesterday with the D70s, 80-200mm ED F2.8 at LARGE FINE setting but still is a bit soft and grainy (because of a crop) for photos here i think.

The angle is lovely, but I think it would be rejected for NOA_center, NOA_soft, NOA_quality. Try a closer crop and also downsizing it to either 1024 or 1280 pixels wide. Did you already run USM over it in Photoshop? Let me know if you need any help just contact me via my profile.

Thank you for all the tips. it was poor framing to beginning with, thus my crop is a compromised one.
I have tried cropping it to a 1024px wide with the height reduced to keep the subject centre. Trying my luck again after i master the USM tool...what is the kind of predetemined levels and settings does one use in USM?
