Here I go! I wish #1 was cropped so that only the reflection shows. That to me is the point of the image. Of course, I understand that you included the thing that was being reflected to give a sense of place. I just don't think that the inclusion matters, but that's just me.

Love the abstraction of #3's reflections. But the large blue areas are very distracting to me. Were you shooting through something to show the water? Maybe it would have been better to have that gone or in focus?

In the first one I kept the upper part because those people under the street lights are a very important component of it and they are less obvious in the cropped shot. I have a version of it here though.
For the third one here is an alternative version with less blue in it.

What are the blue blobs? Do they have a significance for you in #3?

not really, it's just the reflected sky in an uncropped shot

I hate to say that the people didn't even register for me when I looked at any of those versions. I only noticed them after you talked about them. I do prefer your cropped version of #1.
