I actually agree with you! Often too much of everything. I think maybe it's because of using an uncalibrated system ...?
In the examples above I prefer the first and the third - the second is actually a little too much for my taste :-)

Great post Gordon. All too often we fall into patterns of processing that are familiar. Many times, these adjustments are camera specific, compensating for the AA filter's affect on the RAW image. But I think the best approach is to stop and contemplate the image and what adjustments might best compliment the image content. I've often found the best results are achieved when I discard my usual post processing changes and try something new.

My vote, for what it's worth: UnAltered Version.
