I know I am a huge Photoshop buff here on EverydayHDR, but every once in a while I like to give some insight on other programs that I find to be very helpful for beginners.  All you advanced Photoshop guys/gals can probably sit this one out!  However, if you own PhotoFXLab by Topaz Labs, I suggest you look into this High Pass Sharpen Technique I stumbled upon the other day while processing some photos in it.

I took the idea of the High Pass Filter in Photoshop and found a way to duplicate it for PhotFXLab users.  My go to sharpen is the High Pass Sharpen layer in Photoshop, I use it all of the time.  There is no reason why PhotoFXLab users cannot enjoy its power as well!

In this tutorial I also go into a little bit of post processing as well. Not a whole lot but you can see it in the before and after shot below.
