I need your help!

A couple months ago I was contacted by Rangefinder Magazine and they are doing a feature on my photography for the "young guns" issue. I've never been featured like this before, so it's really exciting. The interview and article is all finished but now I'm trying to pick a group of 12 images that shows what I do. 12 images!? OUT OF 12 MILLION! Haha. It's quite hard to narrow down, to say the least. Thanks to Bethany she has laid down the smack and just picked a bunch of images for me...
So, we've mostly narrowed them down but I need your help asap on this one!

These 3 images were obviously shot at the same time, of the same subject, but they are quite different at the same time. Which one works the best for you? You can share why if you want, but if not, just say 1, 2, or 3! (from the left of course)

PS- You don't need a blogger account to leave a comment, just say anonymous or type in your name

Thanks!!!

#1 - I am a sucker for some good clouds. Also I like having the fish underwater. Nice shot!

#1 ..it's the only one that not everyone could have taken and it has a cool feel. Young Guns...congrats, that is a big deal! Just got off the phone with Gene Higa who was one last year...

#2 is really exciting and engaging, eye contact (even with the fish), the victory smile, the great perspective on the fish's size and the fact that half of the image is underwater...
it is a freaking epic shot.
clouds would have been nice; oh well :)

I would have to go with number 1. I like the above water/below water action.

Number 1 all the way - it's very jaws like and the fish seems much bigger (almost as big as the boat). I would just remove the blue spot (lens flare?) above its fin. Congrats Blaine!

oh definitely NUMBER TWO!!! engages the eye immediately, and the most "different and distinct"

I like #2 Blaine, I think it has a better story - I like his foot in the water, eye contact, his relax, the gratification in his face etc..
The clouds are nice but what do you want to say about your picture.

Number 2, with number 1 a close second.

ok, so I'm WAY late... but I'm torn between 1 & 2...

the clouds in 1 are smashing, the lack there of in 2 is annoying (mostly cause that's about all i can say is ugh about it)
but the in & out of the water perspecitve wins it for me. #2!
