Please help! edit/process these 2x images for me
Apr 19, 2011

Somehow I can never seem to do any of my processing right. Whenever I post any of my images there are always some who say they like it but more often then not there are many others who criticize my processing (Over-Processed) and my sharpening (Over-Sharpened) I am now becoming extremely exasperated and cannot see the woods for the trees anymore and am even considering giving up my hobby all together. I have tried various methods and listened to lots of advice but I just cannot get it right it seems.
To get an idea of what I am talking about check out this last thread of mine:
http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1022&thread=38243430

So please, I need some help here and therefore I have uploaded the two original ORF files here:

http://www.mediafire.com/?th92clf8b0xwcyl

What I am asking is the following. Please download the original two ORF files and process and sharpen them the way you would your own image, in other words to your best ability, the way they should look in your opinion, and then resize them to 800x pixels in the longest side and post them here together with your workflow. I would appreciate this very, very much and then I can see how they should look like and compare and see where I have been going wrong all this time.
My sincere regards and thanks
Fred
