Were you aiming for an antique or low quality look?

From yesterday. Tell me what you think.

Pardon my scepticism, but I don't think your first two images look like photos from a DSLR.

To me they look more like scans from a paper print or other low quality device, or else they have been processed to the extent that much of the life has been squeezed out of them.

The first image has too high contrast and poor colours which make me doubt it is from the camera. For example, if the contrast is reduced considerably across the mid tones, it can be made to look somewhat more natural:

Can you tell us how it was processed? Also, as Carsten Pauer 2 requested, please post the raw file so someone can have a go at processing it into a better final image.

Please excuse all these comments if your aim was to obtain something that deliberately looked like an antique/poor quality image. If that was the case, it's best to say so when you post your images.
