All very attractive impressionist compositions. The first example is superb. What kind of software did you apply. Are these stacked images? For example, a composite of lens motion and stills sandwiched. The second example presents slightly too much conflict between the real image and the impressionistic counterpoint. The third example is the opposite ... not as anchored in the real outline and it is therefore lost in a dream bordering on nightmare ... but in a good way. Impressionism simplifies reality to the melody of memory and that is what feels "deep" and satisfying after the fact and it is what ties together what we felt in common with everyone else that has been there and actually seen the scene and secured a comparable impression. At least that's what it says on the comment within this cookie. If I had not been breaking open this cookie as I was seeing your artwork I wouldn't even know what the message was alluding to. I love it when things come together just right.

SS, thanks for your thoughtful comments.

The images were manually manipulated in layers through good old PS Elements. They are not effects from presets if that's what you were asking. As a result, the effects are not consistent. I agree with you, the first one is better than the rest.
