    I think #1 would be better if there wasn't so much blown out sky.

    I think that a little contrast boost would help out the last two a lot. :)

    Not too sure how to keep the sky from looking blown out when it's completely covered with clouds.

    Given the conditions, I like the second photo the best. To answer your question from my opinion/experience only, I shoot to fill my frame with subject, (which is why I liked #2) as the sky blends in otherwise and doesn't add to the image. Happily, Yosemite has a lot of opportunities for this (I love shooting there in winter too)

    I love all of them, this is one of the rare situations where I like the blown out sky, it adds to the starkness of the photo and gives good contrast with the dirty detailed ground... great shots!

    A red filter would help the sky. It would darken it and provide the contrast you need.
