In LR in the Developmment module under sharpening, hold "ALT" key while adjusting the mask slider and presto. Sky instantly eliminated from sharpening much more quickly than layers in PS/PSP5X or adjustment brush in LR/ACR.

Forgive my ignorance but what, exactly, is the "mask slider" in LR4? Or are you referring to the sharpness slider under the masking controls?

I have been using LR for a year or more (LR3 and then LR4) and I never knew that it was possible for sharpen only part of an image without selecting part of the image and then using the masking controls so this is of great interest to me.
