Editing advice for sharp pictures with Lr and Nik-Collection

Hello fellow AP-photographers,

i recently started uploading pictures again after a while. Most of the pictures were rejected because the main object was not sharp.

I was facing this circumstance before but i managed to find a proper workflow ( presharpening via Nik. sharpening and general edits in LR and Noise reduction in Dfine afterwards) which led to numerous accepted pictures.

Sadly im not able to create proper sharp images with this combination anymore.

Can someone help me to find a good way to edit sharp pictures with these two programms?

Thanks in advance!

Random guess, but can it be that you only have problems with shots taken with your 18-200mm lens? I went through a few of your uploads, the 200-500mm quality seems comparable to my shots. The 18-200mm - there are mostly flaws which seem to come from the lens and not the editing to be honest... gigo - garbage in, garbage out - as hard as it sounds, but when it comes to improve sharpness, there are technical limitations in post processing...
