    #1 reminds me of Spinal Tap and so I like it best.

    If you curve the output from #1 to suppress the scanner noise, it looks like it carries the most detail.
     
  15. should I say number one just to be different, no number three looks way better.

    I prefer the middle one because with the background lighter, the image seems to have more depth to my eye.

    I'm late to the party but Todd R./Utopia is my all time favorite musician(s). #2 for me but #3 would be fine also.
