I chose c, but all are very good!

Concerning the city wall/chapel question, I think it was not unusual that churches/chapels were integrated into the defense walls in medieval cities, so why not...

I chose "b" as most folk would probably associate a chapel with a "lighter" feel.  "A" would've been my next choice, but all of them look great.   :D

A or B for a chapel or manor house.  If hard pressed to choose only one, I would defer to Hans' eye for this.

D would be good for a town wall or the like.

I like C and C+, but feel they suffer from being too EGA when other, more attractive options are available.

I might note that the "c"s, because they are the least contrasting, would evoke the greatest sense of calm or serenity to the average viewer, while the darker "d" might play into a sense of foreboding.

Thanks for the great observations! I've had a quick test with C, but it doesn't really work that well with my background, so I think I stick with B for now.
