I know... again, a problem with softness or oversharpening. I think that used to work out better for me in the past, I'm trying to change something to the old workflow... I read the recent threads and very useful articles on PhotoShop actions, but I am using Photoshop elements 3 so not everything can be applied there.
In any case, the following is perhaps a bit different. With the recent rejections I am also not trusting my screen any longer as I find it increasingly difficult to judge the many pictures presented in the forum here as far as softness or oversharpening are concerned.
This one was first rejected for soft, so I gave it some extra general USM
(yes general, as both landscape and wing can use it I guess). The difficulty is the wing and its diagonal line - does it look jagged now?
Does it have a place in the db in the first place, or do I risk a motive rejection on the second attempt?
the original can still be seen here
. I know... very soft, but it looked nice to me on my main LCD
screen, also given the somewhat different motive .
Thanks in advance for your comments!
