Plenty sharp at default setting. Good light in the eye, those are some sharp looking toe nails!

Thanks Karl. Thanks Morris.
Is there ever a situation when you want to decrease sharpness.
I just let LR do it's thing, should I sometime consider sliding the sharpness slider to less than default?

Very well done Robert. The sharpness looks very good. I would not worry about the default settings because what the image looks like is what counts. Try moving the slider to max sharpness - that should look very bad. Now move it back until the sharpness looks good. That's where you want it.
Be careful because slightly over-sharpened detail has a bright look in the fine detail, and you want to avoid that.
The problem is that what looks good is somewhat subjective...

Anyway, here are some examples to show what I think is correct. You, (or anyone else ), is free to disagree with me. 1 has no sharpening, 2 is way over-sharpened, and 3 looks good to me. I took 2 too far to emphasize the over-sharpening. You can see that the fine detail has an un-natural brightness to it. I try to stop before the fine detail starts to brighten too much. This shot doesn't show it, but if you have a dark subject against a bright bg, you can easily get sharpening halos. And if you have a bright subject against a dark bg, the halos will be on the subject - not the bg.
Anyway, I hope this helps ~ Ron

1- no sharpening

2- over-sharpened - notice how the white spots around the eye are very bright and the fine detail just above the tail is bright

3- what looks good to me. The spots around the eye and the detail above the tail look more natural
