I am no expert in this type of image creation and ultimately the end result is from your own thoughts and unique to you however I have to agree that this image bolder in the contrast areas and has a much deeper / darker mood which hopefully fits what you are trying to achieve.

Overall both images are really good but for me this is the better.

If this was a straightforward mono image, I'd say that the contrast was too extreme but as a manipulation, I suppose that whatever spin you chose to put upon it, it will work for you, simply because you like it.
The same, I think, could be said for your earlier version. Because it's a manipulation, all opinion is just that and therefore subjective.
In terms of a final image, my choice would lay somewhere between the two but again, that's just my opinion.
Hope this helps.

Bren.

hi,
i like composite images and i really liked the scorched earth foreground, the clouds are strong, and the figure is well placed with the shadow directions looking realistic and in the same direction of the actual light source.

then after that (its all been looking good up to now) i lose the thread a bit, we have a floating cafe driven by a crow with illumination from a totally and opposing light source. i could live with it as surrealism if the lighting was from the same direction, but then we have a third light source casting a huge shadow on the ground.

i may be over playing it, in the name of surrealism we can let it go, -- but you get my drift. the shots of this nature that do well and gain awards in salons are the ones where the light source and direction has been well thought through.

good start, but did it need the cafe hovering ?

This is quite well done and the joints are difficult to see at this size. It is obviously totally surreal, but that is what it is supposed to be. My only problem is I struggle to see the story in the image. I think composites should have a theme and I'm missing it here.
