Well, i did a lot of trials, and this is the best shot, ISO 200. As always the resized jpg version shows not the detail of the RAW file which is much better than the 3200 ISO version, of course. Exif is there. I shot the entire Virgin so the crops are even more demanding:



And yes, working with low ISOs there're no lost pixels.
Direct crop from the tif:



And applying Amount: 60 / Radius: 23 / Threshold: 0, which is pretty extreme:

I am. Shouldn't i? It's a low natural light situation and the detail and croping chances are enough for a good print. Yeah. It's OK. Thanks.

Absolutely! It's a big improvement over what you started out with. Keeping the ISO low helped a lot.

I was just wondering if there was some other issue you may have had with it.

Not really, tried some flash picks but the back shadows and bright points were not acceptable. The Virgin is in a irregular trapezoidal box, as you can see.
Of course, for the fun of it i may shot with medium format 6X7 film, rotative scan the neg and compare. Also I can try some close ups and wait for the CP filter (slim!) to arrive here and re shot. Happy with the experience!

And the contrast-sharpening adviced by VTPhotog works surprisingly well.
