On the second one I actually had to do quite a bit of dodging and burning in order to make the log stand out from the background brush. I thought about a vignette but opted not to do it for some reason. I might revisit that.
The bare standing trees definitely looked different in real life but looked very boring in the image. I opted to pull the drama out of the sky but I see about bringing the eye in. Perhaps a dark gradient on the ground to bring up the eye.
