    If you take a shot of a huge rock, the photo looks hard...............
    Ok, ok, just kidding
    Maybe you meant like what dingaroo says its harsh? Or do you have a sample photo to post & show the different what is soft & hard to you?
    Take the shot!

    your camera has an option for capturing HARD or soft photo?

    based on the definition of 'soft photo' that I know, the opposite should be SHARP, not HARD.

    Contrast

    Hard: High Contrast

    Soft: Low Contrast

    Sharpness

    Hard: + sharpness

    Soft: - sharpness

    The settings will be reflected in your Exif file.
