More software is going to a subscription model, which offers the benefits of a smaller up front cost and distributing the cost over multiple lower payments.

The second is a black and white, adding some contrast to the previous version.
The third one is just a sepia tone of the second, with a couple small tweaks.
The last one goes back to the original crop, and has some tone curve tweaks to give it an old film look.
I think I like the black and white edits, not sure whether I prefer the straight or toned version.
Which one do you like? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
