I can't really tell much difference. Do you have a raw file? I might spend some time with it and see if I can get anything I am thinking about.. The center pops, but the rest... I think if the rest popped more it could be great (like #2; where to oof back works so well because you are closer in). But here it may just be an exposure issue... So interesting to look at these and comments. Thanks for posting these, I am getting pulled back in... Now I just have to find the time to shoot myself (so to speak) and not just critique others!
