I don't have anything like the car shots, but here is an example of the local contrast I mentioned. First shot no sharpening or USM, second shot with a USM, amount=25 radius=80. Of course you can play with it to taste.

here is my attempt on this jepg file. on my monitor it has green cast so i tried to correct
it but as it is jepg file and iso is 6400 it is difficult to do so. there are little bit blown
up highlights in my edit.
1.an attempt to correct the white balance using all channels of levels.
2. dodge and burning
3. sharpening using smart sharpen (select lens blur, radius 0.1 amount 100) this was
done twice.

I assume you are using an un-calibrated monitor? To my eyes on a fully calibrated screen the image is too dark.

Yea, my example was just what I had handy for using USM with a large radius, showing the difference without touching curves or sharpening ect.. becasue to me this is what it looks like has been applied to the photos the OP linked to.

As far as the shot goes, it was shot at ISO6400 under a strange mix of florescent and natural light and the exhibit is not a color that is pleasing either. I actually like your color changes, I'm not surprised it was not easy because while I agree it actually looks better, it's nothing like the actual colors of either the fake rocks or the leopard, who has a definite yellow tinge to her fur. The fur is definitely not pure white, although it looks better on a photograph if you make it whiter. The rocks, even under natural light are a yucky yellowy-green shade of grey. Makes video look crappy too.

But, you edit did give me an idea to try to make the shots look better - I'd already desaturated yellow, desaturating green as well looks better.

And yes, I sacrificed some highlights for less noise.

Anyway, off subject really.
