Sorry to say nay.

What's the story that you're telling with the fishing one? You have a shot of a nondescript setting with a man with his back to you. I do recognize the big bottle of Pepsi, which tells me that he's going to be there a while and it's not so cold that the soda will freeze, doped with anti-freeze as it is. Oh, and there's a fishing rod, but he's sitting on a frozen body of water with no obvious place into which he can drop his hook.

The thing on the snow. Fine, you got it in focus. The exposure is good. And you nailed the rule of thirds. It might be more effective if it was a bigger part of the image. But what the frack is it? The caption says that it's a jawbone. There are two things wrong with this. (1) If you need a caption to define your work, it's not an effective photo. And (2) yuck. You couldn't find anything more appealing?

well i wasnt sure on the fishing one. just kinda a snap shot. and for the jawbone. it was just sitting in the snow and thought it would make for a good shot. im still working on composition and telling a story with my pictures.

If you think it's "kinda a snap shot" then it probably is. That being said, seeing that, people can give you suggestions on how to improve. I would definitely say turn around so you can see his face - closer up as well, and an action shot could lead to some interesting things. You could use your 55-250, standing by the trees, and frame him with the branches. Keep shooting - that's the only way you're going to improve!

Not trying to improve on your shot in anyway, but an idea on your shot of the jawbone:

PHOTOBUCKET EMBEDDING IS DISABLED BY THIS MEMBER.
Photobucket sends ads instead of embedding photos from their free galleries.
Click the link (if available) below to see the image in a gallery page.

Note, if you had got lower I think this would have been a better shot.

Nay, but number one could be interesting if he was carving a hole to fish in and A LOT closer.
