MOST PHOTOGRAPHERS are obsessed with sharpness their cameras and lenses able to produce. Not that it is a bad thing, most photos look better when it is sharp; especially when it is enlarged.
In my younger days as a newspaper photographer in the 70 and 80s, I was super obsess with sharpness of my shots; for a reason.
Ink on news prints was NOT a effective way to display your masterpiece in all its sharpness and glory, to get a "nice" rendition of your work on Page One; your shot better be damn sharp to begin with!
Photoshop? What Photoshop?
