Tried a different way to process some shots to try and convey the dark autumnal atmosphere at Golitha. What does anyone think ?

A nice set, number 5 is the standout image for me with good composition and colour. Maybe just a squidge faster shutter speed to stop the water a little more but not stop it altogether.

What is the effect on number 2 please?

For what looks like a very drab day, you've really brought some nice colour out in a few of these.

Agree that 5 is the one. Of the others: it's very personal but I'd tone down/desaturate the greens in 2 and 4. The colours in 1 and 3 are much subtler and, to me, better.

I think most of these are overprocessed in all honesty and aren't really working compositionally. It looks like there's potentially a shot to be had with the central beech tree in the first image, but it would want to be a lot tighter.
