I like both of them  - two different views emphasizing two different aspects of the subject.
I felt more attracted to #1 initially but started to like #2 more and more when viewing longer.

Christoph,

Thanks.  I am partial to the third one (not posted here, but in my blog post) for the glancing light on the canoe.

Yep - the third is prettier concerning the light, but the first has this silent lonely atmosphere the action on the third (also a very fine shot) disrupts.
(Just realized, after writing this you named the images accordingly)

Cheers

Love 'em both. 

Not sure he's fishing, though.  Looks more like he's just enjoying the view.   Like us.   : )

I like all three. For the third, it looks as if you waited a few hours for him to finally get up and start moving.

The reflection on the boat is nice, but I still prefer the first one of the three.

The light on the canoe in #3 is indeed gorgeous, but it lacks the wonderful serenity of the first two. #1 is the best, IMHO.

Yes, I prefer the wonderful serenity of the first too.

Have a Nice Day.

The colour in the water in #2 is nicer than the others. I like the composition of #3 and how the man & canoe & reflection form an arrow shape pointing in the direction he is heading. #3 wins IMO

I vote for #1 with #3 being a close second.

Peter,

He is enjoying the morning quiet, yes.  He is a fisherman (as a Goan I could tell him apart even without water or canoe around).

Eric,

This is shot from the vantage point of the bridge across the river.  I got there before daybreak and tuned in to the morning rhythms, alternating my attention between the two sides of the bridge.  I must have spent some 40-45 minutes.

The centering of the subject if the first two adds to the static, serene mood, but my sense of composition would like to see both offset significantly. OTOH, the precise centering of the subject and his shadow in the third conflicts with it's dynamic nature - fisherman's skiff is under way, but he's frozen in the dead center.

Pete,

Thank you for your thoughts.

Both in the first and the third image, fisherman is offset within the canoe and that, in my view, adds a touch of tension.
