Seriously though, I haven't found a decent work flow on Mac. I had a crappy but functional workflow, but Mavericks made that impossible. Now I'm left with a painful procedure.
Interesting comment, could you elaborate on the issues you are having with "Mavericks" ??
I've been using a Mac based system for a very long time, currently I use a 15" MacBook Pro "Retina" when I'm in the field, at home I'm using a 2011 MacPro, the only issue I've found to date when I upgraded to Mavericks was with the MacPro where Mavericks does not support as yet the 2009 RAID Card in my 2011 system (in fact the 2009 Card is it, there is nothing newer), So although the RAID system works, it works less than at full efficiency. There has been zero issues on my MacBook Pro.
Someone mentioned earlier they don't use Adobe LR because it doesn't support the 1Dx, that's not correct in my experience, I have used LR since the first iteration through to currently LR5, all have supported my Camera Bodies, including my current Bodies, 1Dx, 5DMK III, 5DMK II, 1DMK IV, A7R.
As far as a devised system goes, I use the following system and software, all of which works without issue on Mavericks.
Shoot in Full RAW (90% of my Images are shot Manual with WB selected for the conditions and ISO selected)
I Import all Images direct from the Card, or from the External HD if I've been in the Field for a lOng time & already transferred to my 2 1TB HD's, I keep two HD's with 2 Copies of everything.
When I get Home I transfer all Images to my External 32TB Gspeed es Pro system set on RAID 5.
Import all Images into Light Room 5 (as a part of the broader Creative Cloud Suite)(from my Gspeed External HD) I manage Files in LR5 as it seems to do the job very well, Images are easy to locate even when you move them from one External HD to a new HD, just use "Locate in Finder" Tag One Image in the new Drive and Presto your complete Folder is found.
Work through my Images and make a selection by "Flagging" which Images I will work with (I delete nothing, even obviously poor Images, you never know what Software will be able to do in the future).
Once I have all Images selected that I want to work on I begin in LR5 by making the following adjustments in LR
Crop/WB adjustment if required (I make only these adjustments in LR as I like to keep everything on a separate Layer so I can go back and make adjustments if necessary, Layers still does this better than LR)
I then move to Photo Shop CC & make broad adjustments in these areas all on a separate Layer
If a more Local adjustment is required I will generally make a separate Layer in PS CC and go into NIK's Viveza2
If more work is required at this Point, all adjustments are made on separate Layers.
If required I will go into On One's Perfect Photo Suite 8 and utilise adjustments in On One on the built in system of Layers, it's more intuitive than PSCC I feel and everything comes back into PSCC on a separate Layer.
The only other Software I use is Filter Forge, I use Filter Forge for any last adjustments such as Broad brush lighting, Setting in place a Vignette.
I print from PS CC as I find it's better as a Printing Engine than LR5.
I adjust Image size in On One Perfect Photo Suite "Resize".
I adjust for noise where necessary in NIK's Dfine2
I adjust sharpening in PS CC.
A typical Image I want to just show may take around 30 Minutes (this is dependent on how much I dicked it in Camera of course, takes longer the worse job I made of the capture).
To Print may take a lot longer as I would typically go back to adjust for Printing which takes more work than just showing on the Web or on a Computer/iPad etc.

Like Macguyver I would be happy to put this process into a workflow Sheet with Images type arrangement, not sure once it's done though how people get to see it, so welcome to hear if there's interest & suggestions on how to show it once it's done.
