Due to a change in the way we wanted the images to look, the newer projectors’ images tend to be a bit brighter, and less contrasty.

That makes it tougher for these comparisons. In all pairs, the Epson, you can see, is the slightly brighter image (look at the red lights, and the beams on the left, in the first pair, for example), and that is why you are seeing more stars, in the first and third images, and more leaves, in the second one. Because of the higher contrast in the older images, they lose a fair amount of dark shadow detail that the newer images reveal.
