Very quickly looked at the shot more carefully. I'm reviewing on my work LCD
(which isn't adequate for actual screening)... but note the following:
1. Contrast - too much
2. Angle - ever so slightly an amount CW
(maybe 0.25 degrees).
As for soft... I think this might be due to the contrast. Sometimes over contrasting can take out detail. I may or may not have rejected it for soft. As I noted, I am reviewing on my work LCD
and I might note soft when at home.
Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...
