Snow? Already? Where exactly is your neck of the woods?
Processing excellent in both. Nice job preserving highlights, nailing the exposures. Maybe want to share your metering and any exposure adjustment info?
1. A familiar feel. The log barring part of the path. As cropped I think you have two competing subjects The log and path of the water under those overarching trees in the distance. The logs say stop. The rest says go. I would opt for a different crop/message, cropping maybe halfway up along the right edge of the large log. BTW, nice diagonals.
2. This one more effectively pulls the eye along the water, into the image. The light in the water seems to create a triangular shape, adding to the pull. The foreground sticks add to the natural feel of the scene, but pull my eye there first. I might clone out the lowest which most strongly pulls the eye away from the main scene.
