Hey, these are gorgeous!

Very pleasing light, tasteful composition, aromantic natural setting (reminding some lyrics:Once on a high and windy hill...) are all merged in great IQ

I like #1. Great composition, and the sky is extraordinary.

The one thing I would do differently is leave out some of the shadows in the foreground, possibly in favor of some more sky.

Oh, and I like the tree too.

It reminds me of the tree in Kansas.

Excellent! Both. They have wonderful warm light and are very nicely composed.
I have one small nit to pick. I can't make out what the two objects are under the oak and a little further down the hill. Stumps? people? They're distracting because they are unidentified to me. I would be inclined to clone them out in Photoshop. But, that's just me. As I said earlier they are wonderfully composed, and well exposed shots.
I would be proud to have them hanging on my wall.

Well done,

Steve

I took the liberty of showing you my edit. If you would like me to remove it. I will, gladly.
All the best,
Steve

Lovely shots, time to get the wide-angle converter for your camera as you certainly have a way with landscapes!

I love oaks trees, they were considered sacred in many cultures.

I can see why this is your favorite oak tree! This is a beautiful setting, I second all the previous comments!! I do agree with Steve on removing the distracting elements and would have also removed the items in the lower right background (power poles?).

Hello to everyone! I am back from a longer weekend.. and what a lovely comments you have left here. I am happy to see that you liked my fave oak tree as I did.

It's Ok about a removing those distracting objects.. they were little girls picking up flowers to make a flower crowns (what is the right name in English?) for a celebration Midsummer's Eve. I went back to this oak tree with my new camera to see the difference in image. This was late afternoon.. the light is very warm. The other time the shots were done in a midday- a totaly different feeling. And not such a strong zoom. FZ50 is a really great camera for landscapes.

I can say one more time (Steve ) - any edits are more than welcome on my shots - I love to see the result.
