Salt Life.. Three Versions.. Which do you prefer and why?

I was shooting an event today at the beach and was there a bit early to get in some personal photos of my own... I use the Sigma 19mm for my wide shots, and I have the 50mm OSS when I want  a nice DOF on a subject... But it still amazes me on what I can get out of the NEX-7 using the kit lens..... Three versions of the same shot.. I would welcome constructive comments on which one you like and why... Thanks so much...

This is close to the original with saturation ever so slightly bumped up from the JPEG.

Black and White version with my personal settings using Topaz from the JPEG.

Tone Mapped 3 images from the RAW File -0.1EV, 0.0EV, and +0.33EV converted to JPEG final image.
