Frustrating Rejection

Hi all, this shot just got rejected for "Soft" and "Oversharpened" I am just curious to know what you guys think. It's no big deal but I don't see how it can be both. Do you think I should appeal it?

The red stripe is oversharpened.

The starboard wing is soft.

Hey Tony. I'm seeing some jaggies around the titles, the red cheat line and the number one engine. As for soft, my guess is the bottum of the fuselage and the number two engine. Good shot though, I wasn't lucky enough to see any of that when I was in LA.

That shot is very oversharpened. The word Lego comes to mind again. Appealing is no use, just do a new edit with less sharpening. I don't know where the 'soft' rejection comes from though.

No, don´t appeal. Image is way too oversharpened. Forward part of the fuselage looks overexposed, too.
The soft and oversharpened rejection comes from the fact that the image might have been too soft and you tried to compensate that with some aggresive sharpening.
I´m afraid you should try again from scratch, this time.
Good luck.  Smile

I don't think I know what the above quote means.

I will probably re-edit it one day but it's not on my to do list today, it did pass first screening though so I thought it had a chance

Sorry, my bad... Sometimes when an image is jaggy, I compare it to LEGO, where angled lines have a distinct step pattern...

Lego is a marvellous model building system, using studded plastic blocks. Houses, cars, robots - almost anything.

Designed and made in Denmark.
