    I really wish OP's would read the guidelines for the forum. Without them this becomes just another gallery.

    umm 1 and 2 are underexposed nothing PS can't fix. 3 is the best but it looses me looking for a subject, i find my eyes darting all over the picture.

    I'm looking only at the first one:

    Due to exposure problems (too much/too little) the entire photo kind of washes out and into itself.

    the photos are all the same exposure, i just adjusted some more or less contrast and darkness wise in photoshop.

    clearly something is different... it's not the same shot with 3 different photoshop jobs applied... they're different shots and consequently, they all have a different feel and probably different settings when shot (unless you shot them all in manual mode with the same settings)

    that aside, all of the images lack a point of interest. i wonder if color wouldn't be better? composition wise, i'm not feeling it.

    if you're only questioning the contrast and darkness of each photo, the 3rd one is too bright, the first and second ones are ok, depending on your intent. the first one appears too dark (unless you wanted to silhouette the trees in the marsh) and the 2nd is pretty good if your intent is to show more detail in the trees in the marsh.

    Classic subject. These are good shots, but I think it needs more investigation.

    None of them do much for me. There is no real focal point, they just look like snapshots.

    If you re-visit the location, try using a wide angle, walking backwards a while and fill the frame with sky, ground and have a focal point somewhere.

    Hope this helps,
