Just  a few things I'm playing with. As all ways comments need and welcome.

Looking for 3d effect

I like the top two more than the third one.  I'd be tempted to burn through some of that mist with an eraser set on say 20% to reveal a little more of one of the layers beneath - that would give more contrast and depth.  Somehow, the top one looks a bit too washed out to me.  The second one is probably the best of the lot, but the resolution looks a bit blotchy on my monitor.  I have that problem on a lot of gfx, because it's a flat sceen monitor, and the resolution in it is poor compared to a traditional one.

In the second picture, I had to peer really hard at it to read 'reactive'.  Don't know how important the lettering is to the first impression, of course.

In the third picture, I find the right of the picture as I look at it is more 3-D than the left.  The smaller sphere in the foreground advances more away from the figure than the larger one.

For some reason, I'm not seeing the top image at all, just one of those little crosses showing that there's something there!

Pic 1: website not responding, error 502.  I'm doomed not to see this picture, apparently!

They all look fine on my 1024 X 768 res flatscreen 19" monitor. My preference too is for the middle one. Has that creepy touch...

Nope, still just a little red 'X'.  If even you tech bods don't understand why these things happen, what hope do I have? - I just use the stuff!
