Wayne, I think that last unsharp mask is too coarse. Try instead a smart sharpen, r=0.2px a=100%. Then repeat it until you get the detail you want. Step back a bit if you see that it's becoming over sharpened. The first USM is a strange choice as well. A radius of 35 pixels will smear the image rather than sharpen it.. Did you perhaps mean 3.5?
My flow sharpen action (for landscape 1024px width target) consists of:
LR (default sharpening settings)->PS
Resize (3000 width)
USM, r=0.5, a=150%
Smart sharpen, r=0.3, a=77%
So far that is automated but after the script I optionally add one to three Smart sharpen r=0.2, a=100%.
And yes, Samuli's description of his workflow is really great - I learned a lot from his description.
Here is a comparsion the method you described (A) and the one that I use (B). I added two smart sharpens at the end of B. Open in separate tabs and flip between them:
In my experience if you are using Canon or Nikon glass, the way you resize the images is not critical. With Zeiss glass however you get typically a lot of fine detail that gets lost if one isn't careful how the resizing is done. The standard bi-cubic interpolation resize really kills detail by averaging pixels..
