This works fine. My preferred way in NX is to use a high pass sharpen
with radius approx 50px and blend set to overlay. It makes an amazing
difference to the clarity of many images, especially if the light is
a bit hazy.

I like this a lot - hadn't thought of high-pass for this. I found I
needed to reduce the opacity quite a bit (I'm only comfortable with
about 10-15%, but even that adds a nice "snap" to the end-product).

Hi John,

I'd forgotten about this thread! Apologies - I should have mentioned in my original answer the need to reduce the opacity. You're absolutely right about having to reduce it according to the needs of the image.

Cheers,

Anthony.
