Here is a workflow I employ pretty systematically for my stuff that goes to press. You might want to give it a try...

My standard post prod procedure has always been to accentuate at 0.3 pixels at 300 percent and after doing so and if the image is not too contrasty to accentuate again at 40 to 60 pixels at 10 to 20 percent to pump up the definition and contrast. I will often create another layer and add the soft light option and set file and opacity to between 20 to 80 percent and flatten the layer. If you want to see that "FLAT DIGITAL" look disappear this is the technique employed by the best post prod imaging houses in the world. You thought medium format film popped? Well try this and have a ball.
