"the slight halo effect" I think (not 100%) that it is from using the highlight/shadow tool in PS CS.

That sounds possible -- is this tool similar to contrast masking? I noticed your halo because I also have a halo around a picture of Fuji that I uploaded some time ago. This halo was due (I think) to the use of contrast masking. It was itself a re-post but eventually I am going to have another go at it.

yeah basicaly it is PS version of a built in contrast masking tool. With an added bonus of lots of additional grain. Makes it almost mandatory that you run neat image afterwards of course depending on how much you use. I thoguht it was a kinda useless tool at first due to the amount of noise it seemed to add but then after playing with it a little bit I realized that the default settings were almost always way over the top as for what you need. I usually use maybe 2 to 5 % of either highlight or shadow. I also tend to run it first thing after levels... crop, levels, shadow/highlight, color balance, saturaion and or contrast, curves on lum, USM, neatimage.
