I love the first and the last; I think I would like the tree by the river if you cropped it tighter.

But you would prefer monochrome or coloured?)

Monochrome. I think I'd crop off the right side of the image starting in the middle of the white tree, and that way you'd get the rest of the white tree for framing, and then the two walls and the bench as interesting horizontal elements. The colors obscure the lines, and you'd have to crop out the blue barrel because it's distracting.

But, you know, that's just my eye. Go with what you like

Thank you for your comment! Yeah, may be you are right about crop. But this image is already cropped. If I do it again, I am afraid, it will reduce quality.

Some more information about this fortress:

QuoteQuote:
Rumkale was a powerful fortress on the river Euphrates, 50 km west of Şanlıurfa. Its strategic location was already known to the Assyrians, although the present structure is largely Hellenistic and Roman in origin. The site was occupied by various Byzantine and Armenian warlords during the Middle Ages. During the 12th c, it also became the seat of an Armenian bishop. In 1293 it was captured by the Mamluks of Egypt following a protracted siege who then named it Qal'at al-Muslimin.
