Default Make it softer?

Hmmm, this is right out of the camera, just resized and cropped a little. I've never had to soften an image...... I resubmitted at a higher resolution which seems to have helped some.

Well you got note from the screener!!

Look at the white/grey above the cab, the little dome, the white below the windscreen. it is more obvious there. I have gotten this once in a while and never sure why. If you didn't touch anything else like clarity the only other thing is generally I crop first and then resize, smart sharpen last and save at highest resolution. I think sometime I might mess up the sequence or somehow upsize at the end.

Looks like serious compression was introduced at some point in the editing. It's very jaggy throughout on hard edges, and the trees are very soft and diffuse.

Cool to see the screener note though. I can't recall ever seeing that on any of mine, but it's been almost 3 years since I've gotten a rejection. No, I'm not bragging, as it's a massive 18 photos in 3 years... whoopie.

I wonder if the settings in camera overcooked the sharpening on the jpg in camera.

It's indeed rare to get a screener note.

The original did not have any of the jaggedness. Resubmitted at 1600 pixels vs.1200 and that helped get it accepted. Not sure why the resize screwed it up that bad.
