What makes "the best line"?

This is a question I often ask myself but still don't really know the answer, or perhaps it is just that my answer changes with the seasons. Is it the moves, is it the features, is it the location, the aesthetic beauty, or the fact that it pushes you towards excellence.

Here are a couple of pics of my current contenders. They are wildly different, but impossible to choose between... Let me know what you think.

 

The Amazing Ichi Ban, Zillertal, Austria

The Totem Pole, Tazmania - Does it get much better?
