I also like #3, and would be tempted to post-process to put more emphasis on the faces, which make the shot. My first moves would be to darken the foreground with a graduated filter and brighten, fiddle with the local or global contrast, on the faces, with a brush (lightroom procedures, other tools could do the same thing). That might not work - just a starting point. I would also consider B&W as the saturated blue color in the front draws more attention than it deserves. The noise isn't necessarily a big deal.
