I also see part of a reflection below the fuselage and near the engine, since it seems like you took this through a terminal window.

If you applied sharpening using a layer, you could apply the eraser tool and remove the sharpening in that area. Did you resize and sharpen your previously edited version? I recommend starting from you original image, resizing to 1200 pixels first, and then edit and apply your sharpening as the last step.

This was one of the ones I had pre-screened. One of the pre-screened versions was said to be too sharp, so I toned it down a little. Now the screener says this one is too soft. It is barely less sharp than the one that was "over-sharp". Is it just me, or is there some inconsistency with screening, particularly when it comes to sharpening? I think I should appeal based on feedback I got from the forum here.

With the UA the whole of the rear above the gold cheatline looks a touch soft to me, but the titles look oversharp. Could be the light, though. Not sure I can see blur, looking at it again - I have long stated that it's very difficult to tell from such a small image. The original file will tell you for sure.
I'm not really the right person to ask here as I only ever determine the level of sharpness from my original files.
