We-ell, my vote is for the second header displayed, with the following

1.  Put a heavy outline around the part of the upper-left ellipse that's
    inside the notional canvas, suggestive of a drop shadow without
    actually being one.

2.  Saturate the rest of the greens.

3.  Enlarge the nav type slightly, and reset it in mixed case.

4.  Change the color of the tab holding those links from burgundy to a
    terracotta (read: suggestive of colors one might see on a topo map),
    perhaps with embellishment (faux contours?) in the same vein.
    Preserve the existing contrast.

Whee - too many times I watched GIS specialists scratch their heads about
how to get their data on the Web, back when it was too primitive for
anything to be genuinely affordable.

Good luck,
