Need some CC on a few shots - Thank you

I need help.

I've been debating about the 7D vs. the 5DMII for work or going 800E or D4.  Here is my issues.

I'll now have the oppty to follow a well known TV Show through production in remote locations that are hot, sandy, tropical and wet.

Some here tell me to stick with my 7D. So here is the best I can do with the 7D based on what the Network wants.

I'd like advice. How can I improve these shots?  Or should I pick one of the above cameras because the company will be paying for them anyway and I'll get better results.

Here is my current kit: 7D - EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II , 17-55mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, ND Filters and B&W Polarizers for all.  All shooting will be at day but will have two 580EXII. Will not be allowed to use flash during show shooting as it will ruin video production. Two external battery packs. Dell M6600 workstation and two external 2TB drives, (4) 600x 32 GB cards. Backup is a Canon G10 and  60D.

Thank you,

Too soft? In RAW looked better

Gradient filter or PS?  Again the JPEG loses the pop of the RAW file

Too much color? Is contrast right?  JPEG loses the beauty of the RAW

Is this better than the above shot for contrast, color ?  Again, JPG loses what the RAW shot shows.
