Warm weather and cold water made for some neat fog. Really trying to push myself to get better!

C&C greatly appreciated!

They're both perhaps slightly dark, but nevertheless are very good. Great reflections in the first one, although I may have tried cropping a bit of the dark foreground off (just below the mast reflection). I love the layer of fog in the second one.

I really like both of these but the second is my favourite. I think the darkness sets the mood for me rather than feeling under-exposed it feels like that's what you intended. I do agree with Tim's cropping recommendation. All that said, these are both lovely shots! Well done. :thumbup:

Very nice scenes here. I, very much, like #1 just as it is, although loosing a little of the very bottom in the dark might help a little. You may be able to leave it as is and simply lighten it a tad too.

The 2nd one feels a little under-exposed to me, I'd use a levels tool and try to give it more punch. Still like it as is though.

Both are nice compositions but I would have had more sky (love the character in that sky) and less dark water.

I really like the mood in #2

Beautiful! Love them both, however I differ on the crop on the first one, for more drama I would crop the top sky off just a bit, personally I like the way the reflections just seem to dissapear, it keeps your mind going.
The second is great too! but it almost feels like 2 separate photo's the sky is a tad grainy with 2 black birds? and the lake is super clear, maybe just a tad sharpen and contrast on the sky and removal of the birds? but I love the mood in the photo, it evokes many thoughts.
