Steve, They're interesting shots. I'd vote for the first as best, even though you've out Anseled Ansel with the contrast manipulations. To my eye though, some of the others fail because of a lack of depth of field. In this kind of shot I don't think you can afford to let either the foreground or background drop out of focus. They're all tripod, tiny hole, slow shutter-speed situations. But then, landscape isn't my forte, so I'll leave it to the landscape folks to decide whether or not I'm right.
