Very nice, I'd just be tempted to crop a little off the top .

I'd go with #2 because of the pastel layering look which makes it more visually appealing and more interesting than the others. Unfortunately, the lens flare in the left center of the frame takes away from the image.

Thanks everyone! Any suggestions for minimizing flare? I was shooting with a 70-200mm f/4L with no filters, and most of the shots with the sun in the frame had enough flare to render them unusable. I have a few shots with the sun just off the left edge of the frame (no flare) but the composition wasn't as interesting.

Lens hood should have helped...were you using it?

*Facepalm* I guess that would have fixed the problem in the second shot. Do hoods help when the light source is in the frame?

I was referring to the second shot. You could try cloning out the flare spot...maybe you could save it.
