Both great shots. Nice light in both.

Since you're looking for criticism, I'd say the first needs that distracting sign and tree top poking out of the water either cropped or cloned out.

Some people might say the second looks over processed, but it works for me.

id say that the sign and the plank are a disturbance in the first one...

in second one i really like the processing, but i don't understand what should i be looking at, is it the mountain, or the fence, or the road?? you should define the subject somehow and remove distractions away, or compose it so they compliment the subject really well..

Thanks for the replies. The critics were much appreciated and I shall remember them in my next shots.

Now that you both said I see how the sign and the plank are huge distractions. Thanks.

I agree with the others about the sign, tree and the plank. You must not have noticed them, but no worries, it can be easily cloned out in Photoshop.

I personally like HDR, but others may think that the second is over processed, as Kimchi mentioned. I personally like it, though.
