If I might add some confusion? My preference is #3 in that going from dark to light in the archway walls leads the eye into the image. However, the eye is lands on whatever is framed by the portico - looks like power poles, a truck and other visual clutter. In #4, the texture grabs attention diluting the influence of the leading line and the stark contrast, for me, keeps me from looking beyond the structure. Interesting the visual effect of what seems to be inverting #3.
All that said, I still prefer the aesthetic of #3 wishing the clutter were not there. Now what best conveys architecture? The voters must decide...
Don't image this cleared up much,
but my 2¢,
Where all of this is coming from:
While re-reading the above, I am reminded that some time ago I was advised, on this very forum, that if an image must rely on a gimmick to succeed, it is an image of little substance. I didn't appreciate the comment at the time but in reflecting back, the comment was spot-on. Certainly there are exceptions, but for me, in this case that notion differentiates between #3 and #4.
