    I like the idea of the third one... However, I think a bit more of a contrast between the trees and sky woyld make it look better... Also it looks like it might be a bit under exposed... Or something...

    It has potential I think... But there is something about it that just.... Well just doesn't make it say WOW... but I think it could...

    It was VERY foggy when I took #3, I was hoping to get some light coming in through the fog and trees but just wasn't going to happen. I know what you are saying though, I may try to bump the exposure in PP and see what I can get.

    I'm not sure a grad ND would be of much use here. Doesn't seem to be an unbalanced exposure issue.

    I think they just need some leveling and some levels adjustment. 3 probably could have been shot better, but it looks like its still fairly useable with some tweaking.
