Look (at) what you've done!

Hi!  Could I ask you this question? 

 

Practical English Usage (fourth ediction) says that the preposition "at" following the verb "look" is often dropped before a wh-clause.

 

(1) Look (at) what you've done!

 

I was wondering whether there is any semantic difference when the preposition is present/absent.  I was also wondering whether the preposition can appear after "look" in the following sentences (taken from  Practical English Usage):

 

(2) Look who's here!

 

(3) Look where you're going.

 

I would appreciate your comments!
