These are two very interesting photographs. I love the way you're seeing the light.
The top one with the sunburst is the better of the two. The bottom one is also interesting, but there's too much of that dirt road in the foreground. It dominates the picture and detracts from the overall composition.
For both of them I keep wanting to see something more going on. The light is great, but what's being lit is not all that involving for me.
