Thanks for the advice guys. I had an early flight this morning, and I'm finally in my hotel room, or I would have replied sooner.

The root cause of my issues was oversharpening. I start my processing with a preset in lightroom to get me to a certain point before final adjustments. The sharpening and masking settings have worked consistently since I developed the preset, but this image reacted differently for some reason. I started with the same scanned image, and processed differently in LR to get what was accepted. Lesson learned - double check the sharpening before submitting.

Jim, I agree with your assessment. I was distracted with the noise issue and could have done a better job with the final version.

Thanks everybody for your input.
