Lighthouse: I cropped for better composition,and boosted color

Carousel: You had converging verticals-(don't go wider than 24mm for this kind of shot)-I straightened and boosted color and contrast

Don't forget you need a signed model release for everone in the photo!

The Lighthouse will get rejected for composition: the trees in front of it kill the image.

Thank you for the comments and advices. Really appreciate it. It helps me to see the shortcoming in the photos and the techniques applied.

Shooting the branches in the foreground sky is OK if there are no clouds. You had great clouds and you put them behind the branches.

I like the carousel shot. I like how the clouds mimic the motion of the carousel and all of that is pointing to the big wheel. I don't like the people or the tree in the top right corner.
