I like the first photo a lot. The perspective is great. Flood plain indeed.

The last two looked like snow covered fields at first. Then I realized it was water. A polarizer filter might help here to cut down on the atmospheric haze and bright skylight reflection off of the water. I do like the flooded scene you captured in both.

Thanks Dave. I keep meaning to get a polarizer, but generally dislike using filters. I may try toning down the water a bit in LR, as it's not blown. In this case there was no time to mess about, as the sun rapidly set behind the hill I was on. I only just got the tripod up in time, and it was windy.

I played with the contrast quite a bit, but left a bit of a hazy look, as that is what was there, but again, may revisit. Thanks for looking.
