Great photos.  Having been there I know how difficult it is to get a good picture because they are so huge, and you can't get back far enough to frame easily!
To think, before it was protected, apparently there were plans to fell the trees for railway sleepers/ties!

Good shots JJ - and having the people in #1 really helps to emphasise the enormous size of the trees.

It looks like you made a vertical panorama for #3; if so, you might try using around 28mm focal length instead of 55mm, which could include more height without introducing much visual distortion. (28mm is a 'standard lens' focal length for APS-C, giving a similar view to human eyes.)

Cheers.
