I see there is another post with this dilemma and why it's a difficult decision.

Personally I would pick either the option on the left or right, but leaning towards the right side as it is a bit understated and more in scale with the rest of the house.

I have to agree with Dytecture here. I would rule out the middle one. It is the least successful. I agree that the one on the right is more understated and in balance. I also like the one on the left if you prefer something a bit more 'grand' as it has that presence. Please consider how it fits in the setting. That may help you choose between number one and number three. Number one might be too ostentatious in some neighborhoods or a perfect fit in others!

They all seem fine, but the elevation on the right seems to accentuate the hip style roof more! Have you considered the look of four light mullions in the upper sashes, in lieu of 9?
