I can see a slight difference between the first and second flowers, I like the second the way the lighting is hitting looks more realistic. I can't really see a difference between the second and third (the main leaf at the bottom may look slightly greener or its my imagination :p but I do like it slightly more if its not :D)

I found it difficult to see the differences by just looking at the images in the post so I loaded them all into layers in Photoshop. This way I could click the different layers off and on which makes the differences more apparent.

I couldn't really see any differences in the first and third images , even while zoomed in.

To me, the second image is the best of the three. Sharper render and the lighting is better. Or perhaps it's the highlights that make the flower look more detailed and 3D.

well... it was little trick. First and third are the same. As difference is really subtle, I wanted to neutalize order of presentation influence.
Lighting of course is the same too, so the difference is only highlights intensity and sharpness.

Are you on a MAC or PC? If PC you can use Irfanview's Auto Adjust Colors under the Image drop down. MOST of the time it can do wonders for images to dark....

OK, question . . . is that last render a cape and long dress, or just both the outside and inside of a cape? I know there's a way to do different textures for both, though I've never tried it.

it's 2-sided material. In this case on Biscuit's free cardigan. Found only a handfull clothes items were it trully usefull mostly capes. Far more usefull on plants.
Ahhhh, yes I have to agree. A cape is probably the most useful when it comes to double-sided clothing materials.
