I prefer this shot but I think there is too much in the foreground. The colours and the light are good.

i see what you mean, but without the bland/ dull foreground the lovely pool of light will not pop as much and look as vibrant. was a great light moment.  

I prefer this to no.2.  The composition has good balance with nice patterns in the landscape and the eye is drawn straight to the pool of light.  The sky is very atmospheric too.

i think i like this best, but is a fraction too tight on the framing, i will have a look at rest of shots, the storm snow approaching didnt really come out as dramatic as it was.
