    There is something very ominous about the first one. I like it.

    Phew! That's dramatic. Talk about an image making an impact. This one belts you right between the eyes.

    My only critical comment is that I'd want to move the tower off centre. I'd be keen to look at alternative compositional/crop options so that the tower was more to the left of the frame. Just a thought?

    The 1st is dramatic as Donald said. Looks like an alien rising up thru the fog :0

    Good shot in #1. Like Donald said, maybe an off-center crop.
    The other two are nice for adding info about the trip.

    I think so. It feels a much better balanced image to me. Also,w e can still enjoy the beautiful texture and light on the trees, but our attention is even more directed towards the tower.

    That, I think is one of which you should be very proud.

    The first shot is splendid - it made me want to see the shot when there is no fog too
