    Marvellous pics!
    I guess the first link will do better with some increase in contrast and maybe saturation. The third photo is aesthetically best, for it is crisp and bright, but it doesn’t show the features as well.
    The false coloring is a nice thing and it has highlighted the cloud bands.

    Nice!
