Reader Poll-Which Sunrise Photograph Is The Best

I'm working through the images from our trip and starting to really dig into/play with  all the various post-processing options that are available to me (of which there seems to be an endless amount). I started working on another image from our visit to the Bisti Badlands, a shot taken a few minutes after sunrise. I started playing around with the image and before I knew it I had 3 different versions of the image, all done using a different technique. I generally like all 3 results but in a different way for each. So many choices and options!....... This brings me to a question, and I thought I'd ask all of you (or at least the 3 of you that read this)  :-) , which sunrise photograph do you like the best, number 1, 2 or 3? I have a favorite but I'm interested in seeing what Y'all think. If you could leave a comment with your choice (and why you like it, if you want). I think your feedback and input would be very helpful to me as I start to "develop" my post-processing routine. Don't be shy about why you like or dislike an image, I want to hear your honest opinion. All the input will help me improve and that's what I want to do.

I'll tally up the responses and reveal the "crowd favorite" in a few days and then let you know how each image was processed. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Here are each of the images, in no particular order (You can click on the image to view a larger version):
