Pix 1; where are your subjects? road? road signs? lamppost? house? trees? so what is the story of this photo? or just "a test shot taken from my window"?
Pix 2, though this pix has a subject, better then the better, but there is many areas can be improve, watch the tilted horizon, blown out sky, lost of shadow details, I think this place is will have better lighting when the sun is down. try to shoot this place again during the magic hour.
