Okay, so first I want to a extend a huge thanks for the people who voted in my last poll. With your help, I won the photo contest!
Now, I need to send them a print copy of the winning photo contest so it can be exhibited in a gallery. Since I already won, I'm allowed to clean it up a bit in photoshop. Please take a look at these versions and help me decide which one is the best!
Thanks so much-

Original:


1.

2.

3.

4.


I'm leaning toward #3... 2 looks way too surreal and the others don't show the color on the mountains as well.

Xa'at...How about midway between the original and #3? I took the liberty I hope you don't mind.

Yeah, I like it too. This is just a small version, though. What did you do to it?

Submit the non-manipulated photo, its the honest choice.

No, you don't understand. I already won the contest with the non-manipulated photo, now I'm just deciding which one I want to put in the show.
In fact, the sort of manipulation I'm talking about was legal for the contest, I just didn't do it because I was lazy.

Xa'at, I did the alteration with Paint shop pro and if you use Photoshop as most do I'm not sure how to duplicate the results. I added just a tiny bit of color saturation.

Paint shop has a feature called clarify which I used to brighten it up and add contrast. I could have done the same with a feature called curves which I think is also on photoshop.
