I'm not sure what sort of critique you are looking for, Alison.
If this is a project, is it for something like a camera club?
This is certainly out of your comfort zone, but perhaps you are trying to stretch yourself.

I think I understand the idea of an aerial view that zooms in more and more, telling the story of "big brother watching".
For a montage like this, however, the images need to be fairly uniform in exposure and contrast, so that the viewer's eye doesn't get stuck on one, but runs easily from one to the next.
The first one is the odd one out, the lighting and contrast are different. It is darker, there is a lot of glare in the background, and it has a blue colour cast.
I think you would do better to just include the other three in your story.
However, if FOUR is a requirement, you need to work on the first image to get it looking more like the others.
Alternatively, you might have another one that is a better match.

I have done a modification where I took the first image from the montage and worked on it a bit, brightening and adjusting levels, keeping the others in the background in my editing software so that I could more easily try to match it. I don't feel that I have been completely successful, but I think it looks better.

Because each image is full of detail, I feel that it might benefit from having larger white dividing lines, giving a bit more separation. I forgot to do that in my modification, sorry.

I hope that's of some help.

I can see what you mean Pamela with the first image. I forgot to state that the images were to be seen individually in sequence to each other, and yes had to be 4 images. Way out of my comfort zone, but very enjoyable to do. Thank you for your time and mod.
