Can you re-crop the 1st one and move them to the left side of the frame to give them some room to move? They seem a little cramped with the vertical crop.

I wish I would have panned out more for the 1st shot. I really liked the movement in the photo, but unfortunately that image is not cropped at all, that's all I got to work with.

I'd crop the first one into a into a landscape-shaped shot and lose all that water.

I'm still fairly new here, but what do you guys mean by "it looks soft" I'm assuming this is due to processing?

I'm shooting RAW and processing in CS5. What could I be doing differently. It always seems like either my images look flat and dull, or they look way over saturated. Any advice is always appreciated.

The above crop is an excellent one. The shoreline wasn't helping, as it grounded the image. The beauty of the water & waves needed to be isolated, and an added bonus is that you can now see the speed and the panning.

Fun image, one which brings a smile.
