The second doesn't stand out for me, but the first is brilliant! If the painter weren't turned completely away from the camera, I think that it would be a 5/5 shot! Great work nevertheless with the composition and colors

I like both of them, but especially the first. The rich but ordered complexity of the colored leaves, and the painter producing a very different picture from the one which the camera sees. I like how his back is to the viewer, too, because it hints at his concentration and makes this a glimpse into a private world. In the second, I get a similar feeling about the person sitting on the bench, but because he's passive and looking over his shoulder, it's more a sense that he's almost taking the colors for granted by not facing the trees face-on. A lot to think about in these photos.
