Ben,

WRT the second image, have you ever tried including a prop in an image to give a focal point? I know the thought of introducing a manmade object into a natural scene might seem abhorrent, but sometimes it can really add interest if done well. For instance, a wide brimmed hat, sitting on a rock in the lower right of the frame would immedately make the viewer think - where is the hat owner? in the sea? is it lost? The shot begins to tell a story or ask a question
