Might get more detailed feedback on Critique where I hang.
I really like the mood of both images. Personally I am a great fan of decay and texture.
In the first my eye is immediately pulled up the trunks and branches of the center trees to the sky. It aids the mood, but leaves the building as a second point of interest. Works for mood, but I wish I could more readily take in the building. the newer homes on the sides add nothing. For this particular version I would go vertical eliminating the homes.
Second feels a bit tilted down left, but that may the dock and as it should be. I wish there were a bit more details in the wood. They seem to be there, but left fairly murky. I think this image works best as a fairly minimalist presentation, so I would eliminate almost all of the branches by cropping from the top to a bit above the son. I cant decide if the reflected light in the water detracts but it is natural.
Hope it is helpful.
