Is Leibniz concept of perfection is logic?

Leibnitz said that unlimited perfection is limited to divine perfection.
Is this sentence a fallacy between the concept of perfection which is limited and infinite?

As I look at it with dry logic, it is contradictory, but it should be obvious that this is an oxymoron, which is to say it is made On Purpose and has Broader Meaning. Considering what I know about Leibniz, what he meant could be that perfection is limited people's own projection on gods (coming from "divine perfection" in the main thread).

If I understood Leibniz’s concept of perfection correctly, my vision is this:
Only the divine can be perfect according to human’s definition of « perfection ». Since humans can’t conceive what « perfection » truly is, as they are not devine, therefore, « perfection » must be limited to the devine wich is infinite by definition. Makes sense??
