    Well the first one is an attempt at mixin a macro shot with a backdrop.
    Taken at the southern most tip of Europe in Gibraltar with the Atlas mountains as Backdrop.

    Second one is a stream i saw in a zoo and messed around with exposure.

    Third is an alternate shot of the Rock of Gibraltar with a mosque at the start of sunset

    #1 is really interesting, like the approach you took with that one.

    The warmth in #3 is nice. What's in the upper right hand corner though? Not sure if it's birds or dust on the lens.

    its birds, Gib is infested with sea gulls, and they can and will spoil lanscape shots by appearing the split second u take the shot

    The idea is definitely interesting with the first one, and I can see applications for that sort of thing far beyond the you posted. I'd be interested to see what else you'll do with that idea, keep at it. The last one might even be better if cropped out the fence, even though that'd leave only the tower, but if the original file size is big enough, it might be a better option.
