I thought you might like to see all three versions on the same page.
You described the first version as:
sombre, pensive, like the end of autumn, quiet, lonely, open, calm, welcoming, smoky, hazy, lost, faded memories, depressing
The second version came across as:
mysterious, inviting, deep, meditative, introspective, moon-y, dangerous, magnetic, quiet, pensive, calming, unreal, peaceful, nighttime
And the final version was described as:
welcoming, calming, peaceful, quiet, dusk, a prelude to wet weather, somber, sad, unnatural
Thank you for all of your insightful comments!
