Photo one, nice shot of the pine tree, oh there’s a train there too, look at that.
Photo three, beautiful blue sky. Polarized? Nice shot of the pine tree shadow and lost the front end detail of the consolidation in the shadowds too. Take a big flash (hot lumber) to fill that space.

So, I voted 2. Leaving the haze in the sky and the “dead” world around the focal point leaves our eyes transfixed on the what really matters (in this contest anyway) of the “IN YOUR FACE, BACK AT’CHU, LOOK AT ME I’M A TOUGH CONTAINER (money maker) TRAIN WITH GREEN LIGHTS – EXCUSE ME PLEASE” set of power that makes my monitor rumble like it was by one of those pine trees.
