Photo Editing Style - it's so subjective!

The other day I asked a group of friends for critique on a photo. I wanted suggestions for what they would have done differently during the shoot, and ideas for how they might have edited the photo differently.

I came away with a ton of helpful suggestions for my next shoot, and some editing ideas that I would never have thought of! I'm grateful to have this group that I can learn from.

Here is my original edit:


Here are are a few different edit ideas I tried from the group, and one edit by Mark Kelly. Which edit is your favourite (click on a photo to see a larger version)?
