I like them. The fountain is alive. The color of the leaves is beautiful. You can always apply a Gaussian blur to the background to generate even smoother bokeh. Nice print balance and composition.

That fountain is really great---and it does look so alive---really, really like that picture---too many fountains look static in photos, but not that one!

I'll go against the grain...I don't find the picture of the fountain to be a keeper. Looks like you tried to use the rule of thirds to place the fountain, but in doing so you cut off the left side. On the other hand, the second image with the two leaves really stands out...right amount of DOF, nice and crisp focus, nice muted background...the only thing I'd change would be to clone out the stray branches on the right edge.
