I don't see any particular issue with the general sharpness myself. What I don't like is the really very dark shadows, basically black, which looks a bit ugly IMO - eg: the left foreground in the first one, plus the shadow sides of tree trunks and the deep shadow parts under the trees generally.

I think they would all benefit from a bit of shadow 'lifting' - just be careful to balance that as you go with some 'low tone contrast' so it doesn't end up going a washed out grey.

If these were camera jpegs then it may be good to have shadow correction activated, even just the lowest setting. But if they were raw there shouldn't be any problem in pulling the blacks up a bit.
