I updated the photo as I was a bit too hard with the unsharp filter LCE. I 
found a better way to do it that does not create the unsharp dark halo effect 
and does not seem to enhance the noise. I even tried dialing back the amount of 
unsharp mask but the dark halo persists.

The new method is: Create a copy of the background layer, convert it to B&W and 
blend with soft light (or hard light), adjusting the amount. In addition I 
added a levels adjust between the B&W and background layer and adjusted the 
midpoint. The result is a much smoother background color and more pleasing to 
my eyes. I also notice that the blues are close to clipping and I have to take 
care not to clip them.

I am still struggling with whether my monitor is set up correctly.
