I placed a 4th design on http://mjeune.awardspace.com.  I toned it down 
a lot and did away with the human figure, as well as the metallic 
surfaces (except in the logo).  Also did away with the big fonts and 
added more text in the splash area.  I used the green and blue tones in 
the screen shot that appears in the monitor for the links, the logo, the 
buttons, the splash background image and the menu background color.
