The shots are great but next time you might want to look into getting an ND Grad filter so that you can try and even out the exposure of the foreground and the sky.

Especially like the third shot of the rusty mountainside reflected in the lake. Nice composition with the white building on the 3rd.

I reckon pic_*ist is right about the ND grad filter evening out the exposure, though it's not as necessary on the 3rd image b/c there's less sky. Would add just that bit more wow factor to the first two.

I like 'em! a lot

I really like the first and third shots. The ND filter for #1 is a good idea, but it is still a doggone nice photo as it is.

All good shots.

The 3rd in particular demands a large print to draw the viewer in.

These are nice scenes and good compositions but there is something strange/unreal about the results: too much post processing perhaps?

I like these shots just as they are.

You could try gray filters or bracketing and combining in ps HDR tool. But TMO the results would not be topped and loose their link to reality.

Thanks for sharing, I stayed at lake windermere some time ago....
