Just starting to get serious with Nikon getting the best RAW (NEF) for print and wanted to learn what others do as a post processing work flow after capture with Nikon DSLR's ? ... Thanks in advance !

Well that's a pretty broad question and the specifics of anyone's workflow will depend primarily on the software they use.

To answer your question, though, I'm an Adobe user so my basic workflow goes from Bridge, which I use to cull, tag and rate shots; to Camera Raw, which I use primarily for global adjustments such as lens profile corrections, white balance, lightness and color correction; to Photoshop for aesthetic adjustments, cropping, resizing and sharpening. From Photoshop I'll frequently use the Camera Raw as a filter option for the Adjustment Brush, maybe a preset or Radial Filter; it all depends on the particular shot.

And while I do have other plug-ins installed I rely most heavily on NIK Tools, DxO Film Pack 5 and SkinFiner.
