    great effort!

    try to shoot at around dusk, or just when the sun sets, when there's still a little bit of colour left in the sky.

    your 2nd pic looks fine to me. the clouds in the sky add a bit texture to an otherwise dark sky. crop off about 2/3 or 3/4 of the water cause there's not much happening there. it'll give a more "panoramic" look to the shot.
    Today is a gift; that's why it's called the present.

    Sweet stuff!

    Agree with patch17's advice. Crop the water in the 2nd pic away... At least a bit...

    Regards,
    Nick

    i assume u were using a tripod... if so, theres no need to use iso800. keep it at 100 or 200 and your pics wont be so noisy.

    I think it should be 1.3sec (pic 2) & 1.6sec (pic 3).
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.
