Most of it has been said above. I'd prefer to see wild poppies too, but it hangs together pretty well as it is. In the interests of uniformity, I'd prefer to see the same font used for all the text, I'd prefer to see the figures look more like archetypal "Tommies" and I also think the flag is superfluous. Otherwise, the sentiment is right there, and the blending looks ok, especially on a small screen.
Doesn't really work for me, I'm afraid.
These are the kind of images (along with the lighthouse one) that polarise opinion. Some seem to love the fact that it looks completely unreal, others hate it. Personally, I'm in the second camp, with most HDR and pseudo-HDR effects that just look completely OTT.
Nice simple picture, nice crop, good subject, yes, even nice light. My only criticism is the lack of light on his face. You may be able to lighten that area, but something to reflect the light back under the helmet when you shot it would have made all the difference.
It does...the end of the bridge!
Nicely constructed and shot. Simplicity is the key, and my only minor criticism is I think it needs to be brighter. Maybe a result of the tone, but I'd like to see a pure white background, easily adjusted in processing, but a little more exposure would have done the trick at the taking stage. The flash was probably fooled by the predominance of white in the picture.
I think you've pretty well achieved your aim. There's only a couple of things that I might change.
I'm viewing on an iPad, so it may not be the best screen for this but a few things stand out, to me.
A similar comment to the last really, a few seconds later and the boat would be in the bright area, and would be a much stronger subject. Smack (no pun intended) in the middle of the frame is the least impactful place it could be, though caught between the land (bottom left) and the Longships (top right) does help.
I don't think your developer is optimised for delta film. I'm not familiar with it, unless you mean Ilfosol, in which case it is eminently possible to dev Delta in it.
I also think that architecture should be upright, unless you are trying a wacky angle with a wide angle, for instance.
I'm sure the sunset was spectacular, but it's really hard to convey that in an image like this.
It's simple, cohesive and tells a good story.
The main, and most obvious giveaway is that all the subjects are lit differently. You can't just throw together images and expect them to be believable.
