hmm well i'm not sure what's going on then, maybe the radius on your sharpening is too big. here's the look your photo should have, given very similar lighting conditions and part of the world:

the main thing i would do differently is not push up the clarity slider so much. everything has a harsh dramatic look to it, very different from the feeling i imagine you'd want. the clarity slider looks kind of cool for a while, but it gets stale and cheap looking the more i use it personally, so i've laid off it recently.

Thanks for your suggestion. I never use the clarity slider. All I usually use are shadows, highlights, contrast, black, white sliders. Sometimes I lower the saturation too. Here's a typical PP :

The "clarity" comes from the great light that we have in the Alps, and maybe from a bit too much sharpening the resized pictures

But thanks for your constructive comment.
