There may be a few other flaws that you can cite in these photos, but composition and visual appeal are not among them. A few examples:

Those are nice, Doug. I think that some of the RP contributors could take a lesson from these. You don't need (or want) to be at the maximum operating altitude of your drone to get the optimum view of the subject. As a friend of mine is fond of saying, his drone is a "portable overpass" or a replacement for the hill he wishes were there. We don't NEED to have the horizon in the shot to make it interesting.
