I can see a clear difference, the second one is much sharper.

I wouldn't add anymore though around the edges, it is on the verve of showing 'halos' now.
It may take a little more fine selective sharpening around the front windows and nose area, which still looks a little soft.

Best of luck with it,
Ian.
If I could just get the afterburner working...

I like the second attempt better, with the exception of the halos around the lettering. Are you sharpening the entire image? If so, don't.

I agree with Jeff. Too soft the rejected, better the second one but oversharpened titles.
I was wondering, Alan: Did the rejected one look sharp in your new monitor?

Cheers!

Ian, Jeff and Lanas..
Thank you i appreciate your comments.

Actually yes it did but that image was edited on my old monitor but when i viewed it on the new one before it went into screening it looked fine.
I think this is a gray area that i need to get my teeth around otherwise it will cause me to be put off uploading .

Hey Jimmy,

I too agree, the second image is the best. Too me the first one looks as though it was resized off the camera then uploaded!!

I agree with this too. What I would like to know is whether screeners use CRT or LCD monitors. This would then determine how much sharpening is needed.

I don't think this is a 'soft'-case, I think this is a 'blurry'-case. The shot looks a bit blurry to me and I'm not sure if more sharpening will/can correct that without getting jaggies or halos.
