Mitch's stuff: inside joke and I am on the outside? 2am brain shutdown? don't get it?

1st: looks unbalanced to the left, train is running off the frame, I'd crop on the right and make other adjustments, maybe crop the bottom as the bit or rock or dirt seems more distracting than depth-enhancing

2nd: also imbalanced - is that a strong wind pushing the plume off to the left? It's a tough one, I'd start with Kevin's suggestions, a bit off the right also, anything that reduces that bare ugly sky is good.

3rd: not sure about the crop. Looks overexposed - looks like you increased exposure to get driver/undercarriage (correct term?) detail but then the ground is unnaturally bright. Maybe crop a bit of the bottom and on the right to where you drop the large nut.
