Novice phoographer here, just started playing around with my XZ-1 2 days ago. Would love to hear some comments and criticisms on how these images could have been improved!

For the first one, I have no idea what you were trying to do. My only suggestion for improvement is to not have taken the picture.

Now the second one makes some sense. It's a picture of a tree. First, I would have taken it vertical. You have a lot of sky on both sides that doesn't add to the composition. Next, I would have lightened it either with exposure compensation or post-processing (but maybe that's because you darkened the sky; there are better ways). Just a bit, since the sky is an area of interest. But that trunk is awful dark.
