Composition: Foreground Study

I've been trying some different things with photo composition lately. The other night I took these with the object of keeping objects in the foreground in an attempt to create a sense of depth and make the pictures more interesting.

What do you think? Does the technique improve any of these shots for you?

The Raymond E. Baldwin Bridge over a rack of dinghies. I like the solid red and green in the foreground, I just wish I could have taken this from a slightly higer position to reduce the crowding of the boats on the river with the dinghies.

Another shot over the dinghies. Again, I wish I could have positioned it so the boats on the river weren't obstructed.

Bridge over grass #1

Bridge over grass #2.
These two shots are similar and there are things about each that I like. Which one do you like better?
