    The top and bottom one are processed but the problem seems to be that they were globally processed rather than selectively done. The top one has a red/magenta hue and the bottom has a yellow hue. The sky colour is most accurate in the middle one.

    With a little more practice it will be possible to bring the look of all three closer together. The important part is to be careful with colour.

    Keep at the postprocessing.

    The one that is most pleasing to me is shot 3 and i can also tell that it was processed. It's not perfect but it's the most pleasing to my eye.
    Tegan makes some good points as usual.

    hope that helps,

    #3 has the best green field, but not fond of the gaussian blur applied to the leaves around the edge, #2 the better sky and background, and in #1, it's nice to see that little bit of leaf top-centre cloned out. Short answer? Yes and no.
