Option 1
Advantage:

I wouldn't miss Amritsar if there is a choice to include it. I wouldn't rate a long train journey in India as a waste of time either.

You could get the Golden Temple Mail instead of Paschim Express from Amritsar to Sawai Madhopur.

The camel fair at Pushkar and the camel safari at Jaisalmer are different experiences. The fair actually includes other livestock as well but essentially its a traditional, once a year, market for animal buy and sell and a pilgrimage to the sacred pushkar lake due to the significance of the dates it is held on. The Jaisalmer camel safari is a longish (half day to multi-day) ride into the open desert where, if your operator is any good, you should see some shifting, sahara like dunes. You can do a safari at Pushkar too but the dunes are much smaller.
