"Over-explaining" is perfect for me Gracie! Thank you so much for the advice - I'm off right now to see if I can replicate your approach, and will (hopefully) post something reasonable soon for you to see my results.
Thanks again
Greg

Glad to be of help. Just have to watch the sharpening process as it's easy to over do it. Good luck and I look forward to seeing some of your shots.

OOOOPS! Greg... I made a mistake and left out a very important part of the sharpening process above. I'm terrible about giving instructions like this.

Anyway, after you run the High Pass Filter and after you adjust the levels on that layer (BEFORE YOU FLATTEN THE IMAGE)... I convertthe layerto Hard Light... and drop the opacity toaround 40 or 45 percent. THEN I flatten the image. The hard light is what really makes the difference so we can't leave that out. Sorry for the goof!
