The whole chopper is blurry, not just silver parts.

You need to pull this one from the queue Jeff - it is an immediate rejection. Nowhere does it appear sharp to me eye. The blur is very apparent and also there looks to be some editing artifacts - for example, around the registration.

It looks to me like the image suffers from a lot of jpeg compression. There is something screwy with the image especially around the front windshield, the underside and around the reg.

Quoting JeffM ( Thread starter): In this image, http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/n7371TjmBFI.jpg does the color of the paint appear to make the image look soft? The 'non-silver' portions of the aircraft look sharp to me except for certain areas.
I've tried different sharpening methods, if you can do something to lessen that effect, post a sample and let me know how you did it.
Did you use noise-reduction software to reduce grain?

I'd like to see the original unedited file, because the only thing fairly sharp for me is the rotor head.
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

You could have sensor ghosting going on that is reducing the sharpness of your image. I too would like to see a high-res or 100% crop of an area to get a better view.

Thanks for the replies, I'll pull it. No noise reduction was used, I just liked the effect of it being lit against the dark green backdrop. A reminder not to edit with tired eyes.
