    my non critical eye that i am trying to develop says that the first ones horizon should be straighter. A little down sloped. I like both tho.

    edit : on the bottom one, I would place the boy off center, maybe in the lower left hand third.

    I like shot 2 and agree with TT's comment on the repositioning of the boy. I like the tones in this image and the movement in the water. That movement suggests a slow shutter speed with no tripod which is why the shot isn't sharp. I think you got lucky works in this case.

    If this were my shot I'd simply crop it from a bit before the left edge of whatever type of platform the boy is using as a boat all the way to the right side. I'd also play with cropping out some sky and/or water.

    Play is the word here. It needs to be cropped but the exact cropping is left to your play session so long as it works with the composition.

    Here is a link to an audio podcast that describes the rule of thirds. You may find it helpful.

    Hope that helps,
