First one, the sepia ruins details and feel , just me. Second one, sky is totally blown, but I like the dog....maybe a crop tighter on the dog?

I bet the first one rocks out in color.

I like the first one but would remove the pole in the ground and would also remove the 2 clouds on the middle and left to that one (they take my attention away). Also would very slightly darken the ground behind the car windows. I like the old car in sepia.

Its the sepia that is enhancing the blown out clouds....lose that and its a different photo, or at least reduce it.

I don't think I'd do a tighter crop on the dog, it is great just as it is. It gives the dog some space to "look in to" and makes me wonder what he is looking at. Love it.

I like the sepia shot of the car better than the black and white. Like others have said there are details in the car that are lost. Perhaps you can do a layer mask and lighten up the car a bit. There is a "touch of light" plug in that might help. I could not find a link right off but you might try searching for it.

I don't know if you have photoshop or lightroom but with CS5, I tried a quick edit using the shadow/highlight adjustments. I also removed the hot spot in the clouds (poorly) and the single pole on the right.

Just to give you an idea of the detail still in the shadows. At this stage, you could add a curves adjustment to bring down the midtones if you felt it needed it.

I think this one looks much better...also minus the stick improves the picture.

The sky looks a little weird but it's a great improvement and photo. Also looks like hdr now, if you like that.

This edit (sirockalot) looks better. It is slightly darker. Reminds me of a carcass after the vultures were finished. Good capture.

I really like the first one as originally posted. The second picture of the dog is cool but nothing really nice about it. The background on the dog shot also distracts me a bit.
