The dominant trunks lead the eye up into the palette and also help to contain the eye within the frame. Blue sky and whipped-cream clouds complete the literal picture.
The second one does less for me. I don't care for the massive black trunk cleaving the frame like an ax blow. I'm certain you intended it as a leading line to the leaves, and the leaves are gorgeous, but I wonder if it would not be better if there were detail in the bark as opposed to a featureless black. You said these are SOOC. Are they jpegs? There might be shadow detail there that can be opened but it would be more likely if the original files were raw. Opening detail in the trunk I think would improve it. The colors are many and bright but it's almost two separate pictures owing to the slash of black up the center.
The third has lovely colors but seems somehow busy, unfocused (not literally but figuratively). The first two the subject is clearly the colorful leaves, and one would expect that in the third, but for me it misses the mark, possibly because of the tangle of branches and trunks that might function as leading lines except they lead off in many directions, tending to lead the eye out of the frame.
