Sharpening?

Okay, I'm glad that I know that I've been oversharpening. It always looked okay on my end, but maybe Flickr does additional sharpening.

I found a really neat web sharpening action that I wanted to try out. Here are a few pictures with that action - how do they look?

You can CC on other stuff if you want (as I'm still PPing the set), but mainly I want to know about the web sharpening.

Thanks!

The sharpening looks okay to me, but i'm really not loving the conversion on the first picture. It looks really grayscale-ish to me. Also her arm is a little awkward.

thanks, I really appreciate that feedback. I was playing with a new conversion last night, and I was delirious (I haven't been sleeping much the last two weeks and was up too late yet again). I'll try another conversion. her arm is like that in all of the pictures, but I wanted to present one from the set to her anyway.

What action for sharpening are you using. I can't tell so much, it looks okay. I agree with Andrea on the conversion

here's the action ... it's probably overkill with all of his steps though
