New Sharpening Technique from Topaz Labs

In my last blog, I told you I would show you my workflow on how I remove noise from my photographs.  Since then I also watch the video from Topaz lab on a neat trick on how to sharpen an image without increasing the noise in the image.  In order to utilize this process.  You need Lightroom and Photoshop, along with Topaz Denoise.  Here is the URL for the video: http://blog.topazlabs.com/tutorials/image-sharpening-trick/

In the video Using Topaz DeNoise to sharpen an image? Now that something new to us. A technique he invented, watch as photographer Gabriel Fontes teaches you how to sharpen a high-ISO image without worsening the noise artifacts.
About the presenter: A 17 year old from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Fontes shoots with a Pentax K-3 and variety of lenses

I photographed a herring gull eating an alewife at the Herring run at Oliver Mill Park in Middleborough, Massachusetts.  I had used the camera.  The night before to do some night photography and had my ISO set to 1600.  Now I thought I change the ISO 400.  However, I did not.  I will show you the original picture and then the picture after I ran Fonte's technique on it.
