Hi - was hoping for some help again to get this sharpening thing nailed. After my last effort, I took a couple more shots today of my dog Lucy. What I was hoping is to get some advice on my PP techniques and whether I am on the right track and particularly in relation to sharpening of the image.
This photo was exported from Lightroom as a full size TIFF and then resized in GIMP. This has had any work that I thought was needed on white balance colours etc done to it in Lightroom. This was unsharpened and I've included here as a reference point.
This photo took the full size TIFF and added a layer mask and then unsharp mask to sharpen. I then resized the image and resharpened once more before saving as a JPEG.
1. Does the process I'm following sound right?
2. Have I done enough, overcooked it and does the 2nd image look like it has been sharpened at all?
3. What should I have done differently if anything?
Thanks for any help.
P.s. She is an ugly dog but for some reason we love her!
