The last color shot you posted was the best. Personal preference, I would have stopped down to get the whole frame in focus -- the shallow DOF on the bottom of the railing doesn't add anything to the photo.

Agreed with the above comment.

Also, the picture is just too busy to begin with, IMO.

Someone beat me to it. I think selective coloring of the bridge would make a big difference. Perfect subject for such a technique.

Selective colouring is for MWACs doing low-budget weddings.

IMO.

B&W compared to low-key selective coloring:

b&w

Subtle selective:

Still subtle, but a bit more seperation between color and b&w portions:
