This a/c pic got rejected to due having too soft edges. The thing is, when I try to sharpen more on photoshop, jaggies will start to appear. I would thus like to know where the sharpening has gone wrong and how i can imporve it to have this picture enter the database

What kind of sharpening do you use? USM or smart sharpen.
What I usually do is set smart sharpen it at
Amount 500% or less
Remove Gaussian blur
and check more accurate
Then sharpen more then once until I see jaggies then back off one step. Then create a layer cntrl J (default) Sharpen again.
Select the eraser tool. Go over the jaggies and they will disappear. Then Merge the layers
Cntrl Shift E. Then repeat above until the picture is sharpened.
