Workshop Note
Just added some Unsharp Mask in Photo shop to bring out more details. It is always a good idea to sharpen the photo once being done working on it. Usually i do it several times, while re-sizing the photo for the web. I do my re-size in several steps and apply a tiny amount of USM for each step. In this way i get to keep the details of the shot and the quality loss is less. If i have a shot which is 1800 px wide i first re-size it to 1500 px, apply some USM, then re-size it to 1300 px and apply USM, then 1100 px + USM and fianly 800 px + USM. Usually i set the amount to somewhere between 10-25% when sharpening during the re-size and the radius is set to 0,5 (at all times).

Hope you like it
