Sharpening/Denoise challenge
May 27, 2011

So heres my problem: I've been using DPP for RAW development then Neat Image for noise reduction and minor sharpening. Neat Image is excellent for noise reduction, but is not a good solution for sharpening. If I sharpen RAW files in DPP prior to converting to jpeg, the noise seems to be fixed into the image and Neat Image does a poor job of removing it. I'd like to find a better workflow solution. I have posted this crop that has had no sharpening or noise reduction applied

Using your favorite software program(s) I'd like to see what workflow can get this the sharpest and clearest. The full sized crop is in my gallery for download. Please describe what steps you took to obtain your results. Thank You!
