I like number 2. The others are not interesting to me.

I think that's a little unfair on number 3, which is quite pretty, but I agree that 2 is the best.

NUmber 3 is taken in what looks to me as pretty harsh light which does not do the scene justice. It would help alone to reduce the brightness and a bit the exposure during post processing. But in my eyes there is little of interest in the scene as it stands. But it could look entirely different in diffent light.

#3 WAS taken at a less than ideal time, about 15 minutes before noon to be precise. I felt alright with the outcome, but as you are the second person who thinks it looks overexposed I made a (very) slight adjustment.

I appreciate the feedback. It's easy to lose sight of minor details going through so many photos in post, and it really helps keep things in perspective.

This one is a big improvement. Thanks for sharing.

Another vote for #2.  #1 just lacks visual interest for me, and I agree with most of the consensus that #3 seems a bit washed out.  Perhaps a contrast boost would go a long way on that one.

#2 is a nice composition but IMO it is rendered a bit too warm too look natural.

#3 is a nice composition, I would try to "burn" the central part where the tree belt is thinner, it look to me as if there were a lens reflection exactly on that spot, this lowers contrast in the central part of the image (central also in the sense that the eye is immediately driven to that spot). Also beware of the dirt spot in the upper-right corner, in the sky (can be easily eliminated with the "clone" tool).

Cheers
Fabrizio

EDIT I see there are two more dirt spots in the sky, again I would "clone them away".
