        I'm sorry, but I can not understand the "soft" thing. What causes it and how can I correct it in Lightroom? (I tried "sharpen" option but it didn't get the best results. I shoot 1/1000 f/11, here is a part of the original unedited RAW image in Lightroom.

          P.S. I tried to set sharpening settings as shown in the video tutorial (amount 100, radius 1.6, detail 72, masking 50), but I don't see any difference on my monitor. Here is the result:Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0647-3.jpg Views:	0 Size:	1.22 MB ID:	1080203

            This is better, though noisier, and other issues remain.

            In general, best way to avoid a soft image is to make sure the original is as sharp as possible - this is influenced by many factors such as lens quality, camera settings, weather conditions, so it would be difficult to say what exactly is causing it in your image(s). You can also hide such quality deficiencies by using a lower resolution like 1200pix instead of 1500.

              Well... I use a cheap 50$ canon 75-300 lens (the only one I can afford ((( ), the camera was in Tv. Changed the image composition (honestly tried to copy this two https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9596063 and https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9380372, taken at the exact same spot) and reducted the noise.Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0647-5.jpg Views:	0 Size:	788.6 KB ID:	1080213

                Better, but aircraft is still somewhat soft/blurry. Maybe you should try editing a frame that doesn't have that issue so badly.

                  Tried with a few other ones, these are the best ones I could find:

                    Those are all a bit soft too, but can't tell if blurry or not so may be fixable with better edits. If doing so, I'd crop a little less tightly.

                      Thanks! This is my final take on these frames, if they cannot get any better I'll ask my friend to lend me his manual soviet 135mm and see if it makes any difference. I've reduced clarity, saturation and dehaze settings to zero and added some contrast.

                        These would be considered similar, though the sharpness looks acceptable.

                          You mean - similar unacceptable because of the composition/noise?

                            You may only upload one image per side/sequence. These images were taken seconds apart; in the future please choose just one.
