Please fix that to avoid confusion

The reason you perceive a "blurry" look is because of the eye of the cricket/grasshopper. Look at steps 5 and 6 in your SBS. The eye is no longer crisp and sharp in step 6 and the highlight is too dark and soft, this affects how the observer perceives the sharpness of the image.

When you create shadows you are correct to place them on a new layer but you should set that layer on "multiply" (that makes it transparent) and use the Gaussian blur feature to adjust the sharpness. Then adjust the opacity to suit. In lightening the girl you lost all shadows making her a bit flat. She should have stronger shadows to better match the cricket/grasshopper. There's no shadow of the rope on the girl or where her skirt is over her leg.

author says:

Thank you for the advice, it's very helpful. I never thought of using multiply on a shadow layer, I just assumed it would turn it red.

I will try and fix the grasshopper's eye when I can get back to my computer tonight. It's interesting how that one small thing can affect the rest of the image. Thanks again.
