The first one's really nice, the hint of mist gives it a lovely atmospheric quality.

Are you going to call #3 "crows & comets", or "birds & Boeings"? Grin

Very nice photos, Steven!  Smiley

Tell someone that you have two comets there (#3) (but turn them 90o clockwise before) Cheesy

Great images Steven.  I agree with Brian, there's something VERY atmospheric about the first one. Not just the sky, but the play of light over the land to. Nice  Smiley

Lovely setting there Steve & well captured. I, too would have to give the nod to the first shot which has an atmospheric 'feel' to it.
