Great shot Steven, finally I see a shot with thought and purpose of a conceived idea.  Well executed.  Tim

Here is the same corner of a pond I know very well shot a couple years apart under different light.

#1 is the winner for me:
Great red-green contrast and the red leaves shining through in the water together with the water plants make it along with a composition leading gently into the foggy distance.

I like very much the first three ones, particularly tree 2 and tree 4.

Armand, did you find Muir Woods a challenging place to shoot? I did.

So did I: I managed nothing worth keeping. I'm hoping to go back there in April; maybe what I've learned here over the last 9 years will have helped.

Muir Woods is a stunning place. I've been there twice and still no keepers. Maybe the third time...

I took way too many photos with doubtful artistic merits. One of the problems was I did quite a lot of hiking and didn't have that much time (or disposition) to set my tripod for every shot, so I took a lot of them handheld. Most of those didn't deserve a print anyway but a couple did and they were blurry; as you've noticed without a tripod is tricky, I was frequently going to ISO 1600 at least, and 1/15-1/20.
The good part was that I had 2.5 days so I got to know the main area. But everybody takes pictures there ... When I went there weren't too many people though (beginning of January).
I probably got more interesting photos on the trails going out of Muir, I attached the trails I hiked.

And few more now that you've made me look through again. I've noticed it's easier to get something if you focus on details than when you try to get the entire thing in.

I know what you mean about details, but then you can do that almost anywhere. I found it technically demanding. I carried my tripod all over, but still was shooting bracketed shots just to make sure. I also found it aesthetically challenging, as you intimate, to try and capture some of the grandeur. Love the trails you were on! I grew up there so all over the place. Morning and evening light can be good, but then you have the DR problem. I have seen some lovely days with the fog up in the trees, but then your conditions are very different. Also, glad to hear that Muir Woods' challenges didn't mean I was just a putz ;)

I know the area.

Mount Tamalpais got 21 inches of Rain during the recent rainstorms.

You're timing could not have been better.

I shot this one this past fall.  The Aspens were lit by the sunlight coming thru the clouds and really show the beauty of the grove of trees.

David, fall last year stunk in the Aspen groves.  Usually you can  plan on everything being great just a matter of time till they all go ballistic in color.  Last year being the wettest year on record some of the forest were great and some never even turned.  I had planned on the forest being amazing but the water and extra moisture kept the forest from really turning.

But as my mentor said turn the negative into a positive.  A hard thing to do when you planned for a whole year on where you were going to shoot.  But when the time is prime, you have to think bit differently.  So I scouted more, planned for the snows and focused down on much much smaller areas.  AS I said some places were out of this world, but the snows ruined most of them.  Here is the one I posted earlier just before the storm came in.  I waited and waited for this and drove back to get it the day of the storm. 

The second one we were waiting for it to change more but the giant storm ruined it and they went black.  But maybe next year.  Still a nice glow, but sure would've been nicer in another few days.  Tim
