I like, but I like the Silver Effex effect better. Sure, it could be fiddled 
with, but it provides an otherworldly effect that your moosification doesn't 
have. You've popped the contrast up a bit, but you've lost the magic of 
whatever SEffx pixel bending Tina did in the first one. Her SEffex made the 
doorway look like a gateway to Faerie; your moosification makes it look like a 
well-defined doorway.

It's been my experience that sometimes it takes a while with Silver Effex Pro 
to get the right look. One tends to go too far one way, and then too far the 
other before having that Goldilocks moment. <g>
