A bit of judicious cropping might improve the second image. Horizons are a classic case where the rule of thirds often improves a composition. Try cropping the bottom of the image so that the horizon is about a third into the image. The 2 subjects are already roughly a third in from the edges.

You could also crop or clone out the structure on the right, to increase the feeling of space.


Cheers, Damien

+1!

Recropping to get an off-centered horizon + pano look + cloning out the far right building = stronger image.

Cheers,

Jeff

Good advice on the Need a Rest. What I would have done was wait for the rower's right arm to lower so that you can see the face. Even though it's a tiny part of the image, the viewer's eye is always drawn to the face.

Regarding Impact!, great expression and good exposure. I am not one to slavishly favor the rule of thirds. But I think it would help here as there is a favored side. Try cropping off a portion on the right. It will add to the dynamic feel as the subject will be perceived as flowing into the middle of the frame.
