#1 seem noisy and 1/80 at max zoom...ok la. Hmm I avoid this type of shoot, especially max zoom for taking landscape.
#3 also seem over ps, over saturated. Maybe next time when taking landscape/sky try to use A mode instead of P. Then spot meter on the part which gives the best overall histogram. and if possible reduce exposure compensation <1 to try out for the sky.
#4 nice sky and clouds but foreground very under, can ps. Try other metering mode and most importantly look at your histogram as you shot.
The 1st pic is the best if your camera can zoom even closer to the towers. Everything is there waiting for you to capture the scene, but your zoom is not enough though.
Anyway, if you have the opp to shot the same scene & if the same lighting happens to be there, zoom in a lot more (with whatever equipment you can) & shoot either hori or vert.
Happy shooting dude.
That's why I stated that "no PS, no cropping". Just want to show the original. It was taken wide, that leave me with room to crop it if I want.
Being said that, the whole purpose is to show the exposure. It is not easy to get the correct exposure for this kind of shot, particularly when there is a big contract between the tree (dark) and the clouds (bright).
