I went through stages of realizing, then working to better manage, my sharpening because I was overlooking edge issues / halos caused by unknowingly over-sharpening.
I normally don't bother with Lightroom for my jpegs but a lot of shooting wildlife is in early / late low light conditions with high ISO which often results in background noise.
Maybe that sharpening / masking approach will help on a noisy background even with a jpeg...thanks for posting.
