Nice find ... interesting set.
It's interesting to see how much impact the 'ultrasoft' lighting has. Compositionally,I guess I'd go with #8 for an "as is" choice. It seems to have the most cohesive leading lines with both kind of looking at each other, scale, balance and lack of competing distractions (comparatively). When I start thinking at reworks, then several come to mind @ making changes.
Of course, with so much to choose from and the ability to tweak in PP, they could all become much different than they currently are. It's almost like you've got a blank palette (odd I know) from which to work from due to the lighting (lack thereof) clues. In that manner, it would seem that you have tremendous lattitude in how to "paint" your lighting in to draw your viewer where you want them to go.
The giant softbox seems like it is too soft here, lacking modeling clues that could assist with the dynamic subject matter. Good news is that it should be rather maleable to work from to create your vision. Almost any of these could be 'transformed' dynamically to achieve whatever POV you want to present.
Without looking at any of them ... just thinking about the experience of being there and all that you saw/felt ... and you could only tell someone ONE THING that they had to see when they went there, what would it be?
1) The area as a whole
2) A single feature
3) The relationship of features
When you answer that question as to the "one thing" (whatever it is) that you would want to make sure that people see / don't overlook ... then I think you'll be on your way to deciding which version best represents that, OR can be best transformed to achieve that "one thing" that you don't want anybody to miss. Then you'll know.
P.S. Lots of candy to play with, but I'm DIW due to a wicked nasty virus that I picked up a couple days ago ... having to rebuild my PS machine and it's not going well.
