Sharpening in CS4 or CS5 for the D3 - What Do You

What are you favorite CS4 or CS5 sharpening settings for the D3?

There's so much out there and would like to hear from fellow D3 users and what they do.

At times I'll use Smart Sharpening @ 100 to 150% with a 1 pixel raduis combined with with Unsharp Mask @ 20/50/1.

I also use high-pass with soft light @ 3 pass.

What have you found that makes your D3 images pop?

Re: Sharpening in CS4 or CS5 for the D3 - What Do

Ultravista, sharpening has very little to do with your camera model. Yes, some cameras produce images with more "digital softness" than others but there is no formula or standard for sharpening. Sharpening should be tailored for individually for each image. If you really want todo it right, a single Radius is not usually appropriate for an entire image. You need to evaluate the profile of the edges in an image and decide what needs sharpening and how much is best.

I Capture Sharpen* in Lightroom’s Develop module and output sharpen in the Print module if I’m printing from there because its all based on a sharpening workflow based on this concept: http://www.creativepro.com/story/feature/20357.html

I'll take a look at the two-pass sharpening process. Thank you for the link.
