I like one, and would have loved 3 if it wasn't for the stick or whatever in the foreground.
I don't like 2 because of the foreground is distracting, especially the red.
Just this amateurs opinion tho, I wouldn't put much stock in it :O

I like the composition of #2 the best. The way the foreground foliage and evergreens frame the scene is pleasing. I also like that the right tree is blocking the green buoys. Since you're close by, maybe you could try another version of #2 where you're standing a few feet to the left and pointing the camera a little more to the right to try and get more of the left tree for balance. For the type of subject, I think the lighting in shot #2 is also the most appropriate. When I'm seeing nice houses on a lake with docks and boats in what looks like CA or AZ or somewhere like that, I'm expecting it to be bright and sunny and inviting.

I don't care for the boat leaving the scene in #1. I wish it was leading me in instead, especially if it was far enough into the scene that the wake lines lead me downstream deeper into the image. I know you can't do much about that, save for waiting for it to exit the frame altogether or sitting around hoping a boat travels in the other direction.

In the last image, the dead branch poking into the frame should probably get cloned out.

I knew that stupid branch in #3 would be a magnet for critique. I really need to learn how to clone stuff out (I'm a newbie at PP)...

Thanks for the input. Interesting how different people see things differently. :)

#3 has the best light, but I like the clouds and activity in #1. #2 doesn't work for me.
