A bit of advice needed (Post Processing)
3 months ago

For the longest I was stuck using the NX2 post processing program. I was restricted to a universal sharpening tool and also universal saturation tool. Recently I downloaded the NXD beta version and I now have access to an unsharp mask and also tone curves. After a little experimenting I think I'm getting the hang of the tone curving. Much work is still needed, but the tones are atleast satisfactory.

My difficulties are manifested in the form of sharpening. I understand what "intensity", "radius", and "threshold" are, however I am having trouble combining them in a way that provides predictable results.

Would someone like to take the time in helping me get this image as sharp as possible? I'm not asking for it to be done for me. Rather, I'm looking for advice. Thanks.
