I'll let the experts comment on the color and all, but I really like that middle picture. Also, I'm not seeing the sensor dust in the third one...but I'm on my laptop rather than my desktop so it may be there somewhere.

All of these seem to be a bit too saturated. May want to tone it back a little.

It is on the warehouse/building right above the green ex-BN unit, might be hard to clone out, its in a tough spot, but it can be done with patience. I really see the 2nd and 3rd getting on, the first is tough with the cloudy sky...

1st and 3rd, looks like a magenta cast, I see the pavement as being off-color. Not able to check it in software. Second one looks too candyland for my tastes. I agree, poor light on the first one.

The color is Hicks'd on all three...way too radioactive.

Here is what I came up with.




All three have a heavy red cast. I started by removing that. Then, desaturated the image. The left side in front of the tire was still heavily saturated so I used the sponge tool to pull some color out of the area to match the rest of the image. Removed the dust spot (Really quite simple. I was pleasantly surprised). Bumped the contrast and worked the curves to pull some detail back. Then, burned the edges back to how you had them. The colors still don't look quite right but its not atomic red anymore. You may get better results starting from the original. Looked at B&W, cant say it works well with this image but it is certainly an option.

It's an interesting shot. Plenty to look at. Good luck!

Ah, I do see it. I was looking in the sky.
