V1 is quite good Herman, though a little soft. Maybe shot through glass?

V2 is very much over sharpened. You always need to be careful sharpening animal hairs, - they go overboard fast!

Uploaded a mod, toned down highlights, lifted shadows, small amount of sharpening, adjusted mid tone contrast for more detail.
