Glitchoplasty Re-edit

So I've never really been a fan of this particular edit of this photo from my glitchoplasty series.  



It felt... dull, muted.

a little lifeless, frankly. 

And considering what was happening at the time (I was recovering from deviated septum surgery) , so was I.  

I've thought that I should stick with the original edit to honor what I was trying to achieve with the whole glitchoplasty series but this shot just doesn't feel right.  It never has.  I've really wanted to redo it for some time now, so...

I did.

And I'm glad I did because.... 


I love the result. 

Which do you prefer?
