Original RAW file of this picture is very very sharp, but somehow I manage to loose that sharpness when converting files into jpeg. I guess I do something wrong but haven?t yet fired out what is it.

Looks crispy sharp to me. I guess you know this but sharpening *after* you have resized the image always leads to very sharp results, especially for websized display. If you use Photoshop CS2, there's this thing called smart sharpening. It is much better that "unsharp masking" or the traditional sharpen-filter (worst). If you know this all already - my apologies.
By the way - cool image! Could be improved by cropping out some of the lower part.
