Thanks, Moose, excellent article!
If you never have, I would suggest trying out Black Point slider in Photoshop with your image at 100% to see what happens to apparent sharpness.
I also reset the sharpness filter in Camera Raw a little bit to adjust for images from my camera. This initial sharpening just modifies the RAW image.
I do a final resolution resize and sharpening to fit the size of print being made and the presumed viewing distance. In Photoshop you can use adjustment layers to sharpen only the areas of the image that the viewer will most notice, such as eyes. To me, a sharp area looks sharper when areas around it are actually a bit less sharp. :^ ]
