#1 for me.
In my opinion, the white ships transform an artistic shot into a documentary shot because of the visual pull of the highlight.
Not sure what you were intending.

They convey different moods. The colour version is tranquil, perhaps because of the reasonably clear reflections; the b&w, ominous. I prefer the b&w, for what that's worth.

I'd get rid of the white ship, though, or at least tone it well down. It's distracting and unnecessary.

I vote for the B&W version. It is cleaner than the color photo.

Pretty good, but need to correct the wide lens distortion.
