I can see some jaggies in both shots, as if you have been too ruthless with the sharpening, although they aren't a million miles off.
The main problem with these two I think is motive. The first seems too high in the frame without anything dangling on the end of that chord.
The second, I think could have lost some of the rotor on the left and centred the chord more, but what looks like some sort of pressure vessel on the end isn't as appealing as a person.
Obviously missing something....
