Took these photos at a local state park. Was looking for some opinions on what other's thought.

Were you using any filters
I used a neutral density filter.
I doubt it…
I think more in the direction of too much saturation
but otherwise pleasant compositions.
I didn't mess with the saturation in post. Maybe I need to dial it down a little bit. I'm very new to this so I'm still trying to learn.
They are a bit oversaturated for my taste too, but I was raised on Agfachrome, not Kodachrome or Velvia... High saturation in landscape photography seems to be much more acceptable in the US than elsewhere.
Besides the saturation they are well executed even if I would try to vary the position of the horizon in the frame in more of them as a non-centered horizon can give some visual tension that grabs the viewer.
Peter's right. Having grown up shooting Kodachrome and being a fan of Pete Turner, I have somewhat less of a problem with the saturation than my obviously more evolved European cousins. What I do have a problem with is the framing which Peter alluded to. In some of the images you can see part of the picnic table where the shots were taken from. In the first image for example, which I actually like a lot, just moving away from the table would have made a big difference in the image's artistic quality. However, even now that image could be easily improved by cropping the end of the table and the trashcan (or whatever it is) out of the picture.
