First looks like original. Second is cropped and looks like a "realistic" HDR version, which I like because of both the improved composition and the greater ease of seeing the details - the latter usually being an important consideration when the subject is as dark as this one. So far, it is my favorite of the bunch.



Third image has an overcooked look to it, mainly because of the halos around the foreground. The sky has also lost its identity as such and looks more like a blue landscape consisting of closely-spaced buttes with chasms between them. The image does have a brooding atmosphere, but mainly because of the artificially-imposed darkness of the image.


Fourth image shows promise with its perspective effect but the effect is spoiled because the pedestal in the foreground, along with the green stuff growing in front of it, is still in the frame. This violates the rules of perspective and largely spoils the effect. Conceptually, this is easy to repair, but the devil is in the details. Perhaps tedious to repair, but possible.

The third one was done with Redfield's fractalius. Feel free to change it to your liking if you wish.

Thanks but no thanks. Someone else may take you up on your offer, but it isn't really my style.
