#1 is really good. Interesting perspective, lot of detail considering you were shooting straight into the setting sun, great composition.
#2 is good, but more 'ordinary'.

The first shows power! The incoming wave has an ominous look. Cool shot!

The second is nice but it is missing something. A crop might enhance the view a little bit.

I do not like the border. I do like the images themselves though.

That 1st shot is pretty cool! I agree with mrbubbles that it shows and gives the feel of the power of the wave.

I feel the 4 birds (could be 5) are distracting in the second one.

The first one is one of the best ocean shots I've seen - very well done.

I like both. I would be happy to have taken either.
