I definitely like the first shot, D2F35309-4260-4683-981C-1EA73C3DF1E1.jpeg, best, because there’s more open space in the sky. You could use this kind of picture for almost anything!
I tweaked it a bit, cropping out the deck chair on the left, which seems to draw one’s eye off the picture instead of towards the subject, and also cropped out the house on the right, which (I find) also does that.
Also, and most importantly, I straightened the image, making your horizon level; this avoids a “hand-held-shot” look.
The effect of the strongly slanted sunlight on the golden leaves is gorgeous. Good timing on the shot!
