Post Screening - AC02

Hi, I had a photo rejected twice for the reason of Blurry and I cannot see why.
In the second rejection, the screener also commented "Portions of the AC are blurry and blurry is impossible to fix.", but under 100% view the original doesn't look blurry at all. Can someone point out the blurry parts in my uploaded version? I'll post the original 100% view of those parts here accordingly so that everyone can look into it.

I'll also keep using this topic for future post-screening stuff.

Generally looks okay to me but there are small areas that for some reason appear soft/blurry. If you say the original is tack sharp you have your answer, however: it's obviously the edit. I've had it where pin-sharp photos have looked dodgy after processing and I have found that uploading at a larger size sorts it.

Can you not just post the full-sized original somewhere, rather than just parts of it?

Thanks for the reply. I think it's not 100% "tack" sharp, but definitely fixable. Here's the 100% view.

Possibly slight micro-blur in parts but should be fixable. I'd expect the registration and '747' titles at the rear to look soft/blurry since there are very high contrast edges causing CA. More worrying is the level of noise, however.

I‘ll try a different sharpness & contrast setting for this photo. Thanks Karl!

For the 100% view above I reset all my sharpness/noise reduction settings to reflect the original appearance.

I agree with Karl in that noise is the biggest (and honestly the only) problem here, though a little sharpening increase wouldn't hurt. Excited to see this shot up on the DB. A great one for sure.
