I have 3 photos which I want to display side by side of Nantucket scenes taken at 90 degree angles of one another all of which have green vegetation and blue sky as well as pond or bay water. 

I want to post process to increase the saturation and change the hue (vegetation and sky) but want it consistent among the pictures.  Is there a way to do this with either the files in a RAW format or in a TIFF format after each of the individual pictures are arrived at from the Nik HDR program?

Were the exposures all the same?
If so, then process one image to taste.
One can then copy the settings by right clicking on the image - the very first option that comes up in the dialog box is settings, you want the 'copy settings' option.
With the other images right click as before >> settings >> paste settings.
See how you go.

Thanks Tony.  The exposures were similar as I took it on an M9-P using aperture priority and the scenes were in similar lighting conditions.  I think that would work for global adjustments. I was thinking of gradient filter or brush adjustments locally. 

Is there a way to"copy" down what changes you made in terms of degree of hue change and the like and "paste" those changes to the appropriate spot on another picture?

Not that I am aware of unless you yourself keep track of the settings.
Lets see if anyone else has any bright ideas about this.

What about making the changes to one image and saving those settings as a preset?

I may be wrong but I don't think that local adjustments can be saved as presets - nonetheless I would be happy to be proven wrong.

At the bottom of the "Custom:" menu in the brush or NDF interfaces, select "Save Current Settings As New Preset".

This is a "local" preset that is used within the context of the brush or grad filter. Brushwork cannot be included within a general Develop Preset, but the filter can be.

Thanks for the heads up.
Just shows you - no matter how well one knows a package like Lightroom there is always opportunity to learn.

Thank you Elied, that worked.  I have saved presets for the ND filter for the sky and hue/saturation settings for the grass and water when using the brush.

The Match Total Exposure command (once you have several images selected) might help initially but I suspect you'll need to do tweaks to each to get a prefect match.
