Prime Lens Question

I just bought a t3i and looking to buy a prime lens. I know The nift fifty is the crowd favorite because of the low price and the value for money it offers. But what if i'm willing to spend a little more. What about the next alternatives in line from Canon i.e.

28mm f2.8 $250
24mm f2.8 $369
35mm f2 $400

Are they any good. recommended? anyone using them? I'm inclined towards the 28mm since its cheaper of these three and wider than the 50mm. Should i go for it?

Bear in mind that i'm a beginner when it comes to dSLRs. and i know that it is trickier to shoot with the primes as there is no zoom and one has to move a little bit more to get the required composition. So will it be easier / difficult to shoot with a 50mm or a 28mm.
Would really appreciate some guidance here. Thanks : ).
