    Just the same image with 3 different types of PP.
    One looks kind of harsh now that I compare them but just wondering which one you guys prefer.

    Please do check them full size as well to evaluate the details clicking on the arrow pointing down icon.

    #1. The higher contrast in 2 actually seems to block the shadow detail and 3 has a few issues for me.

    That is my preference and exact evaluation as well!
    #3 was done late yesterday when I was too sleep to know what I was REALLY doing and it shows cause colors are off and harsh details lol
    #2 I did go too strong on the contrast as you mentioned so I am glad I have someone seeing things how I see it. :)
    Thanks!

    #3 has lost to much detail in its fur but I prefer the details/colors on the tree its sitting on :)

    So, overall #1 gets my vote too :)

    I like the first one because the sharpening and contrast change in #2 makes the background more distracting. Can you isolate the contrast and bump its contrast?
