Of the three, I personally like the second best.  

I like eye contact with the subject.  

I would crop this rather tighter than shown.  As is, to me it looks like a photo of a wood shop with a worker and the shop isn't very interesting to me.  Crop the left and right sides out and it it starts to look more like a protrait of a wood worker to me.  Then I might crop some off the top to put the worker's eyes more where I expect the photo's subject to be.

I also like the perspective of the wood frame around the worker.  The worker's blue sweater seperates him from the background very nicely.

I would clone out or burn down the light leaks at the ceiling.  I want to look at them and there just isn't anything there to see.

Exactly what I was thinking.  I believe (and been mocked for believing) the rule of thids works very well more often than not.

Indeed. You are absolutely right !
The rule of the thirds works pretty well.
I like your crop.
When I cropped the picture I try to balance it but you made a better job.

Don't care about the others who mock you for applying the rule. Just apply and say nothing to them.
One day - I am listening to Donald Fagen on Pandora, which I like very much - I have posted 2 or 3 pictures and evrybody liked best the one which was cropped under the 3.eds.

Where are you from ?

Born in Ohio, raised all around the USA, now retired in Arizona.  I don't lose any sleep over mockers of thirds.  Thirds worked long before any of us were born and will work long after all of us are gone.
