Your image does look better, except then the cowl does not match with the armor and that bat symbol stands out so much it could be used as a marker for target practice by criminals.

The cowl isn't supposed to match the armor. I'm just making it look more like the comic book black-and-gray Batman, while retaining the realism.

Actually, the reason Batman wears (or used to wear) the yellow symbol is the same reason why Frank Castle wears a huge white skull. Because it draws gunfire, and his chest is covered in kevlar. Take another look at Dark Knight Returns. He mentions it.

Also, the picture that I think you're talking about is WAY too well lit. That much light and a totally white background just kills the picture.
