Default Spotting oversharpening

How do you spot oversharpening? Is there a method, or is it something that you learn to spot? I'm talking photos in general, not one particular photo.

Thanks!

it will start to look like there is a halo along the edges of everything in the photo. The more its oversharpened the more, the stronger the effect.

Jaggy or pixelated edges are another give away - frequently I'll see that pop up along hand rails.

You'll also see that on any wires that appear in the photo, either codelines or powerlines or catenary.

I tend to look at the number boards as well if there are any.

But 1024 wide can give zaggys if you view it lager 1024 So if pixel peeping at 150% you will have them.
