The IR makes it look better than it does in reality.

This one works even better than the first, IMHO.

Agree with Eric's assessment here, the first static, as if a lacquer box. The second dynamic, almost melodic. The of thing is, that often at Mt Auburn it "feels" static even on windy days. Not sure why I always had that feeling. Minor spent so much of his final year seeking tranquillity before retiring there, almost felt as if he placed a hush over the surrounds.

It's a wonderfully striking image. If I have one suggestion, it would be to darken the very bright white of the central trees just a tad.

EDIT: I was writing about the second shot.

The second image balances the earth and sky in a wonderful tension between the trees that want to hem in the water and the clouds that want to radiate outward. Even the triangular cloud reflection contributes some tension.
