Default Undersharpened?

I honestly thought I oversharpened this one. I did crop this one a good bit since I couldnt achieve this composition at 250mm. I know the background is soft but the center of focus is on the signals and train, are they that concerned about the background trees? The engine and signals look tack sharp to me. Also probably needs to be levelled, trains going up a grade, signals are leaning, so I wasnt sure where to begin...

Train looks fine, ballast looks a bit soft. RP in general likes well sharpened ballast.

I'd accept it. YMHV

Looks plenty sharp to me. Perhaps the screener was imbibing.

Looks fine to me as well. I would have accepted it without question. The screener's glasses were probably etched by a sand storm.

My fifty-something eyes must be bad. Any sharper would be oversharpened.

I think the screener's opinions tend to be oversharpened especially with digital shots. Great shot.
