    First one is nice, but it seems too busy for me, with the trees, and the reflection of them all in the same picture, maybe just focusing on one point would be better.

    I love the subject of the second one, but it just seems a bit too dark for me, if that was lighter it'd seem perfect.

    Nice shots overall though.

    I agree with the comments made by LonelyTraveler. I always like the starkness of black and white, and if the photo is too busy it detracts from that IMO.

    two would be nice, imo, if you completely made the bottom part dark enough to make the whole image a silhouette.

    its nice though
