I recently returned from a quick trip to Yosemite. First day we had awful snowy weather with low cloud cover. That was crappy, but it made for some excellent foggy like conditions the next morning. Some may think these are overdone...

Yosemite is great in the summer but simply awesome in winter. Great captures.

I like the second shot very much, but the processing in the first image has had a very detrimental effect on the sky due to extreme halo-ing.

the second I really like. I might be tempted to crop a little below the patch with that stick on the far left.
first not so keen on the halo, but otherwise very nice also.

That second shot is beautiful. Yosemite is a magical place.

I will part with popular Opinion here.
the first one is a great image which is ruined by HDR. Halos, uneven sky, dirty snow, blown highlights (snow), color shift, its got a bit of everything. I would consider using exposure fusion, or layering, or just some light shadow/highlights. would be very interested if you post the middle image.
The second one, the processing works a lot better. you need to increase exposure by 1/2 to 2/3 stops and boost the contrast. You also have some strong chromatic abberation. I generaly try to minimize that before merging to HDR.
they are both compostionally good.
