They look much better. Did you use Photoshop or Elements? Did you bring open the JPG's as Adobe Camera RAW, or did you leave them as JPG's?

I used Photoshop but everything except perhaps straightening the horizon could be done in Elements.

Both images were opened as jpg's.

In the ruins shot I used the "Quick Selection" tool to select only the south face of the ruins and adjusted just those levels to bring out the details.  Everything else was simple "Levels or Curves" adjustments.
