1. The first has more to say.

Beautiful shot.

2. Thanks so much for your thoughts, my dear cachukis.

I thought it was a bit dark and that was why I edited it.

3. Understood. Audience eyes are important.

The first one is not in the calendar, but has a shyer demeanor. It has an expression we don't often see. Detail juxtaposed with a deeper darkness. Mystery there.

4. I prefer the second one.

It looks more like the moon! The craters and seas on the first one are too obscured.

5. Thanks so much, my dear Ohiogal!

I tend to agree with you. I felt the first photo was a bit too dark, so I worked on it to produce this version.
