Agree with the rejection.
For distance I´d suggest you crop tighter and see how it results. I believe you´ll be fine.
For the oversharpened issue you´ll have to ease on the USM and work with layers, that will help for sure. What sharpening combination are you using?

Quoting San747 (Reply 2): I apply a USM, duplicate the layer, expand the selection by a pixel, then apply 2 additional USMs. If it's still a little soft, I duplicate once more, then apply 1 more USM.
Duplicate your layer first, apply your USM, (not sure I like those settings, but have not used JPSP), then I would erase your jaggies using an opacity of about 5-10% until you like what you see. Then set opacity to 100% with a soft brush and erase all sharpening on the sky.
If JPSP allows layer masks, then I would use them preferably over erasing. Layer masks are far more accurate.

I don't know how to use masks or the method to remove jaggies, which are also a problem of several other photos that I took at the same time as the one above... is there some sort of tutorial or something for that?
