It's difficult to separate processing from the image.
No processing is right/wrong always - except maybe extreme HD and hugely oversat or oversharp.
This is in the middle range where it might work for some and not for others.
Why not post an image where you think it works?
This is actually one where I did think it would work - strong geometric lines. Me reference to an imperfect picture is more in slight focus and composition adjustments that I would make a second time around shooting. For now, it was stock to play with. For example, this is a shot where you expect to see sky behind the tower. I'm tossed between it working as a clear, blown sky and the subject being out of place without any sky texture behind it.
