Golden Gate: Six Aspects

Back in the mid 1980s I took this picture of San Francisco’s beautiful Golden Gate Bridge.  It’s still one of my favorites, but this week I decided to play around with a couple of different photo-editing programs and see if I could improve the shot.

I’d love to hear your opinion — which version do you prefer, and why?

(I’m still making up my mind!)
