I don't hve any disagreements about the rejection reasons, but I need some advice here. I'm using PS7 to process my D30 images and seem to have a problem with AA pictures, they are either what I consider to be potential 'badjagged' rejections so I don't upload them, or I upload them and get badsoft. I don't think there is an issue with the raw images but I'm sensing that I need some PS7 advice.
As a comparison here are to pictures under similar conditions which were accepted.
I don't recall my USM settings but I use the sharpen tool to touch up the nose gear/nose/cockpit area and titles if necessary. Is there a way applying USM to selected parts of the image without having to resort to the sharpen tool?
I'm afraid I only have a couple of months PS7 experience behind me so I'm still learning how to use it properly.
you can't buy time but you can sell your soul and the closest thing to heaven is to rock'n'roll

OK..i'm just a begginer at this so I can't really help here.But IMHO those are some fantastic shots.Especially the first one.Really nice lighting and color.If that was my shot I would print it out and have it up on the wall for sure.But thats just my 2 cents.

Try setting threshold to 0 - a setting of 5 means fine detail won't get sharpened - with a D30 you don't need to worry about empahsising grain!
The sharpening tool should be avoided - it uses a very basic sharpening algorithm. As Jason suggests, you are much better of using the mask tool to select a specific area for sharpening. To avoid any unnatural edges, feather the mask by a few pixels, then apply USM sharpening.
