Default Do these images look soft?

Do these pictures of today look soft to you, too? I like them otherwise, but the softness of them surprised me when I looked at their full size...

Maybe a couple, but the difference between letting these go and rejecting soft images is that the ones you have shown are very nicely composed and the landscape detaches the fact they are a tad soft. They look very well done to me, at least.

Look fine to me. Why are you asking?

I looked at new pictures and clicked promising thumbnails. And some of them seemed so soft to me that I had to ask.

This one looks quite unlevel.

I'm personally not much concerned with sharpness above a certain point. None of these are particularly sharp, true.

The first two are softer than I would have made them, but I guess not too soft for the screener.

The third photo is tack sharp, I don't know why you included it, unless it's a trick question.

The fourth looks fine, but there's not a lot to judge with.

The fifth is soft, but again, I guess not enough to bother the screener.

You could probably find photos like that every day. Why was yesterday special?

Wow, yeah, I didn't notice that when I first saw it last night. Geez.
