The update feels a little too much to my eyes (personal taste)... 

Why does the white blob become a dark blob near the head? Is that a raindrop?

To me, the original seems more real. Mind you, probably just me... but I do 
like the detail and contrast as it highlights what my eyes cannot see. I might 
try backing off on the opacity a bit.

I recently updated ccprofiler (ColorChecker Display Plus) and recalibrated my 
monitors. Images are now a bit more vibrant than before. I notice I have a 
tendency to over do photo processing. The images look great but after my time 
testing method (viewing after some time has passed) often has me reverting to 
slightly more subdued processing. 

If you show them to most people, though, their initial impression is to like 
the cooked image.
