Three of a Kind panel

I've just started putting images together for a 'Three of a kind' competition in the New Year and thought that I would go down the abstract route. The following three are my first stab at putting this together. They would all be cropped/mounted so as to be the same size & shape, but I've shown them below in their un-cropped state. They would be displayed left to right in the order 1, 2, 3. Any thoughts and suggestions as to changes I should make would be gratefully received. For those who are interested, they were all taken in and around Bosham Harbour in May last year.

1) - Left hand image

2) Centre image

3) Right hand image

For me they work as a threesome, the lighter one being in the centre as you have them and the horizon lines look like they'll roughly match up

Do you have another you could use instead of number 3. 1 & 2 have a continuous flat horizon at about the top third compared to 3. I'd also be tempted to keep them all the same size format as 2, which might accentuate the horizontal pattern of these well imagined images.

They have a Turner-esque style to them. I think 1+2 would benefit from some structure or feature in them, like 3.

I think I might need a new pair of glasses!

Yes, either this or the contrary: a more abstract one in 3, as in 1 & 2. Whatever the choice though, I like these very much - quite dreamy, in an uneasy way.
