I like them all...but would come in a little tighter on the last few. with the colors so blown by mid day sun, some of the detail is lost by being so loose. Other then that... and that being a nit or personal preference... they are just fine.

Thanks Mark, I agree about the cropping.
Would you have approached the PP differently to get better color?
Considering the sun I was pretty happy with the photos.

I think they are pretty good considering the conditions. Taking image 5, assuming you are using Photoshop, I would go into Image->Adjustments->Exposure and play with gamma and offset. It will allow you some more critical adjustments on contrast and allow you to drop the greens and greys down without hurting the rest of your colors. It's all very small adjustments. I have found I have been able to rescue a lot of shots via this method using many small adjustments. You can also go into curves and move the base points subtly inward, but you tend to loose some detail when doing it this way.

that's my 2 cents worth... and even then I think your probably not getting your monies worth form me. It's a lot of trial and error. Cheers.

I just wish mine would come out as well. Great job in my humble opinion.
