I was out this weekend and was screwing around just thought you might like to see them. Looking for any help that might make them better i think i did ok an the waterfall but the black and white tree (I still have not made up my mind) ps if you haven't guessed it is an hdr it was one of those bla days and it was the only thing that seemed to work

First one has got too much noise for my liking, second one I'd frame a bit differently, as there were many interesting colours above the waterfall... But that's just my opinion :) Second one looks a bit soft, too.

Agreed, the first picture has quite a bit of noise, making it look like a painting. Maybe the first picture's bottom is too sharp, making it look distracting, same goes too the second one, the top is a little distracting.
Other than that, the pictures are great looking.

Why don't you post the first picture, but this time in colour?

I'd have a guess these are handheld HDR shots - hence the softness. There's also some ghosting evident in the branches - was it a windy day?

The first one was probably shot at ISO 400 or above. HDR really highlights the noise.

The subjects are great, but there's something about the composition that isn't quite working for me. I think a foreground focal point or some other point of interest in the first one might look good.
