I pulled the high pass back a bit. I actually like it more now. See if you like the skin any better now.
Looks perfect there Rob.. Yes sometimes, specially when it's a long day editing and we are doing this at 2AM our eyes get used to the images and I find in my case I tend to use a too heavy HP mask. One quick way I find to see if the HP mask is too strong (pixel radius too large) is checking on the hair and pores, since those are the ones that will screw up an image if the sharpness is too much. Worst thing is that I normally save original size, then a large 1800x1200px for my Flickr account and finally a 720x480px for website forums and Facebook. So there you go, I have to create HP for all 3 sizes and personally I like to mask and only apply to certain areas so more work even.
PS: For the quick and dirty edits I normally use HP for sharpening but if it's an image I will print or that I really love I go the long route and apply proper sharpening techniques.
