Welcome to PC Forum ... we do try.
As to the first one ... it seems as it is going to be intended as a graphic interpretive, so rendering is totally subjective @ in that regard. On the technical side of things, the noise & halos are a bit distracting, but the noise is also a bit reminiscent of film grain.
As to the color balance (i.e. sooc), I think that is just going to be a matter of mood that you want to present as to where you want it to be. With a strong graphic / interpretive as this, there really isn't a "correct" ... unless you want to try and correct it to a neutral WB, but I think that'll just transform it to more boring ... but I might see about some cast removal @ darker area.
On to #2 ... much goodness here ... IF the viewer goes looking for it.
I'm diggin' ...
great lines & shapes
repetition of three @ buildings (linear) and floats in the water (triangular)
Personal preference might call me to tweak on processing for something a bit more dynamic ... but then again, that might be a wrong move.
That being said ... I wouldn't expect much of a response from a club as they have a certain "non-wow" factor that people are often looking for. I expect few will give a strong appreciation for them, but ... ya never know.
Here's a rough @ what I had in mind @ cast removal for shadows, and a little creative preference @ color (totally subjective), as well as a slight crop off the top.
Note: I didn't even try to address the halos ... those would likely be something to contend by not sharpening as much (or even at all) for this kind of image.
