S  I  SFirst of all, it is a very well put together set and I particularly like the different sizing of the shots. I think you were right with your choice of the main image, as the red of the funnels and warmth of the wood panneling really lift the grey mood of the sky.

I think there are options available that might improve the overall effect, but these are very personal things that may not appeal to you. I'd be tempted to crop out the BBC(?) building with the satellite dishes on the right of the main photo, but keep in the line of bollards as they work well. The light on the Maid at centre bottom makes the Waverley on her right look dull and dowdy, and I'm wondering if it would improve the feel to just tweak the levels slightly to bring them closer?

No need to say much more as basically it's a fine idea and well executed.

Frosty Morning

Frosty MorningI like the scene well enough, but feel a bit more contrast would make it a better shot. Try tweaking it in Levels or even just Brightness/Contrast control.

Bathing Pools

Bathing PoolsI can see the attraction of this place in such conditions, but a shame you had to fight off the others! The first big choice here for me was the decision to include the handrails on the right as I'm not sure they add to the shot. My reason for saying that is the fact they are not grounded on the concrete at the bottom and they disappear off out of the edge of the RHS of the frame.

Besides that, I think you've done pretty well with the composition, particularly where you've left a strip of blue water between the reflected hill and the walkway, plus the handrail leading in from the bottom left corner gives a good strong diagonal. I think it could stand a slight increase in contrast.
