I think I would go with the third one. The blinding sun is gone and evens out the photo. A ship from days gone by.

I like either of the sepia images. You just need to bump up the contrast a bit. The lack of color in B&W and sepia images usually requires a bump in contrast to look right.

Another approach would be to merge the three raw versions (from LR). I merged the three jpgs using DPHDR (color & 2 sepias) but because they were small jpgs I lost some of the smoothness in the highlights.

Going with what Maxwell said (and what I was thinking when saw the pictures), here's the topright sepia image with some more contrast:



Either way, this is a really evocative picture. While lacking a subject it really 'works' by setting a certain mood. I'm not too big a fan of the last merger picture, it looks as if the topright corner is fullcolour, and the rest of the image is sepia.

I agree with Alan
