#1. like maxby said, it's technically well exposed and you did still a moment. i felt your use of the "dark" areas was a nice touch, liked your capture of the reflections of the trees on the left side, enjoyed your gentle cloud formations and love the blue sky. i feel it's a good shot, but just missing that x-factor that could have made it a spectacular shot. again, great advice from maxby, "just think a bit deeper before shooting". a sin which i, too, am guilty off when shooting landscape.
#2. sorry, the only thing i like is the silhouette of two people standing. but i feel they are just standing. and what is that thing to the right of both of them. is a another person sitting down but hanging his head down in dismay? or just a piece of wood coming up from the tree? yikes. spooky. the biggest sin, i feel, is that the horizon is really off.. i almost never see spectacular shots where the sea is tilted. i also didn't quite like the "dark" areas this time. i also wish you'd waited for the sun to set summore coz sometimes the sky really really becomes a beautiful at the last 15 minutes before the sun sets completely.
justs my two cents worth. i hope you find it useful.
