    I like the third one. it's pretty similar to the type of palette i've been using. and the linework helps define the shading.

    Much also depends on the colours of the rest of map too....kind of hard to comment on the colours in isolation. Maybe one thing to try is to use a complementary colour of your lights to make the shadows which may help to make things 'pop' a little more.

    I like the color of the first one, but it looks unfinished...there is at least one valley that can be shaded in that I see. The extra detail will bring it in line with the style of the third one.
