Far North Queensland C&C pleasse

Got a few nice pictures on a recent trip but I am inexperienced so would appreciate any help. Having fun with a nice camera that is way more capable than me. I really like the colors in the early morning shots but do they work for anyone else?

Technique is as follows. Use DPP to edit from raw, starting with DLO usually 100%. Gamma adjustment usually just shift LH margin across to where the graph starts rising, lift shadows, highlights down, color saturation +1, sharpness strength +1, fineness +1, sometimes brightness +1 and then crop to taste. I can remove some rubbish with stamp tool and make minor color adjustments. I also have Affinity Photo but struggling to understand it. Some of these shots have a haze which was part of the scene but I would like to know what better can be done about it.
