    I need a serious critique on those... I have to decide which one is better:

    1. The original version:

    2. or the one with auto-levels adjusted

    I am going to enlarge one of those and dunno which one :)

    I like the first one better Mentos. The colors are a lot warmer to me. The blues in the first are also more relaxing too I think.

    Have a play with the curves Mentos - and I mean a real play, make it like a rollercoaster and see what you get. Trouble is, if you only use auto levels to balance the contrast etc. you can miss out on the finish.

    Have a play, be rough with the sliders - you can always undo it and start again.

    That said, I agree with elsaspet, the first one is a lot warmer and more serene
