Sorry, but you asked for a critique, not an attaboy: I don't understand what you were trying to do. If your objective is to see what colors you get from changes in color temperature you can shoot a raw file of something like this and then play with Kelvin settings all day long in Photoshop, going from one extreme to another and back again without having to shoot more pictures.
There doesn't seem to be much in #2 other than a black blob with a light band above it and another below it. Number 1 is a little better, mainly because of the "Boathouse Closed" sign, but to make something useful out of it you'd need a little more light on the lettering of the sign.
Stephane Desnault made an important point in the "Hot Spring, Lake Bogoria" thread just below this one. She said: "...each time I compose, I ask myself the question 'Ok, now what is the subject of that picture?', with the understanding that "'landscape' is not an acceptable answer." That pretty much sums up my problem with your post. What is the subject of the picture?
