Default Rejected for Blurry - Appeal??

Hi all, got this one rejected for being blurry.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=276355371

I see the blurriness (is that even a word?) in the exhaust coming from the locomotives, but the rest looks crisp to me. What is your opinion? Is this one worthy of an appeal or is there something I'm not seeing that a more trained (no pun intended) could point out to me.

Thanks

The locomotives are a little soft and I would also crop off some of the bottom of the photo myself.

Number boards are blurry, or at least not sharp. Need to fix instead of appeal.

I agree with what has been said. Just looks undersharpened, not blurry. Use some USM and resubmit.

While it does like a little soft, does anyone else think that the sharpen tool is used a bit too much? I'd rather have the numberboards be a tad soft than jagged. It looks more pleasing to the eye to me. Anyone else feel the same?
