I like the setups - perhaps a bit too much hdr for my taste though. Where is the shot taken? I do like the elements of the scene a lot.

I think the first one has some potential, but I agree with the 'too much HDR effect for my taste' comment.

I like the images but as others say there's steill very much potential. I would try darkening the lower half and increasing contrast, this will "dramatize" the land more and reveal more colors I think.

Curious - what camera/lens.
Looks like good DOF from the clips.

I think the HDR looks fine, I like it, only my guess is that's it's Topaz more than HDR. On the first image, contrary to what jtrujillo says, I would lighten the foreground, bring out the detail and let that be in contrast with the sky. IMHO
