Default I'm having a soft problem!

Anyone got a magic blue pill? I've had several versions of this dinged for being soft. I usually go by the numberboards and I thought they looked pretty sharp. Although I don't have the best eye. I liked the look with the heat distorting the signals. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Looks slightly soft on this one, burghman. The soft rejection is really broad in its meaning. Entire image, a little soft, really soft, out of focus? Just a tad more me thinks.

I think it could be the heat distortion.

I think they're seeing heat distortion around the plow and calling it soft. Couldn't hurt to sharpen a little though.

Gotta agree, heat distortion. Not much you can do.

FWIW, I'd give it some breathing room... looks really tight to me.
