Each has its merits/appeal, but I like #2 and #3 for their unique perspective and the sense of size created by the lighthouse (#2) and couple walking (#3). However, in #3 it appears that the horizon needs straitening.

All good but I especially like the "God Rays" in #1 and the perspective of the white
cliffs in #4 as they trail away...

I've never been to England so forgive my ignorance but are those the "White Cliffs
of Dover"...?

Nice shots I like how the rays shine down in #1 in #3 ..I was wondering just what are the structures up top and noticing how the waters can damage so much of distance shores... #2 .. that little light house wow makes it look like we should really see the water as the destroyer of life in some places ....they should build that thing up higher before the seas claim it altogether...... ... We have our coastal lines we watch and try to prevent from claiming. such as Washaway Beach in Washington State..its all two sided thoughts to save or to allow to claim.... England is a place I have always wanted to go as well as Austria... just runs in my blood...

DO they ever think of saving the cliffs to preserve them to prevent the waves from destroying them?

While all are appealing, I definitely vote for #1. The rays descending thru the clouds to reflect off the surface, draws your attention immediately. The picture combines the sky, sea, and land into a single photo which immediately draws your interest.

I like 1 the most, the rays are great. then 2 . I think they could be made really dramatic with a bit of playing around in photoshop.
