I’m a city kid, and a water rat, so take this as such. The scene doesn’t do much for me. I would like the camera pulled back or panned a little right.
Of the two presented, I prefer the first (top), but don’t like the clouds in either one. I would prefer lighter clouds with the saturation of yellow and darkness of the back lit scene. The only explanation for light on the structure’s sides seen by us is reflection from the sky. What is the correct brightness?
Some of the blind critiques deal with portraits, some are of landscapes. You might enjoy them. This one has a bit of landscape and a bit of HDR, you might enjoy it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYJBrKz3e2s
