    Took these the other day, not sure which one looks best...I'm thinking #2, because of the contrast in colors and shadows.
    Your thoughts, again thanks in advance.

    Totally not a relic. I'll bet that thing would run with a little fresh fuel and some elbow grease.

    Technically I like #3 best, simply because there's less background distraction and the contrast/color is best.

    I like #3 too. The tractor is obviously the main subject in that shot...it's a little lost in the first two shots. It's like you couldn't decide if you wanted to shoot the tractor or the trees in the background. My eyes keep going to the trees on the right instead of looking at the tractor.

    This is a place where a DOF scale and judicious use of DOF would have been nice to keep the dozer in focus while the trees in the background blured a little.

    looks like you captured a UFO on #2.

    i agree with #3 being your best shot.
