Sensational colours!!

I like 3 and 4 the most although on my screen a little more contrast would give them a little more pop.

To me, the composition in 1 and 2 is too "standard" - taking a photo while standing on the road.

Perhaps compositions from much lower down closer to the road on one side and looking slightly up with the road being a leading line into scene might have been more compelling.

Just my $0.02 and hopefully some food for thought.

Thank you for sharing

Thank you kindly for your comments David! This helps.

The atmospheric conditions in this area were far from ideal because of the forest fires some 30 miles away. The National Forest just opened this area to the public (partially) three days prior to my trip, so there was lots of haze in the air. I had to add quite a bit of contrast to overcome this; I suppose I can push it a little further - I hesitated to do this but will give it another look...
