#1 I love vertical wide angle shots like this. But I don't think the color is really helping. I'd like to see this one in B&W, probably de-emphasizing blue in channel mixer, to bring up the rocks and vegetation.

#2 My favorite of the series. Beautiful subtle palette and semi-abstract composition. Might even try desaturating it a touch.

#3 Very dramatic. The cloud gives the right touch of mystery, although unfortunately it's not a very interesting cloud.

#4 Feels in between focal lengths to me. I want to see either more or less of the scene.

#5 My second favorite. Love the light; great sense of depth.
