I know the sky needs replacing. But I would like some advice on sharpening. I was after a lovely crisp architectural shot, I'm going to try some of these in B&W but the colours were important in this one. I have autocorrected levels and contrast, but left unsharpened as the settings I tried (in USM of Amount 150%, Radius 0.6 - 1, and low Threshold (1 or 2)) seemed to leave the ivy looking blocky. Any suggestions on how to sharpen for this type of shot?

best getting right in the camera first, try a different time of day when the light is better, early or late on, use a longer exposure and a lower film rating, use a polorizer and a ND if you have to

Wonderful colour - difficult to say on sharpening because each image is so individual. I usually prefer 'high pass sharpening' http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/high-pass-sharpening.shtml but for USM on a full size image I would increase your radius to 2 or more and threshold to 4 or more - hopes this helps in some way.
