Split channel (red retained):

I like this one the best, personally.

The split RGB and using the red channel is definitely the better of the two conversions. This illustrates the shortcoming of a straight grayscale conversion. They are generally flat and dull. The split channel and other techniques being used in this challenge help objects to stand out more and make the photo much more appealing.

Good work.

Number 2 is definitely the winner. It looks better than the color orignial, IMO.
Nicely done.
