The first photo may be bottom heavy (i.e. the cropping) to the screener. However, the sky is completely blown out, which unless it's recoverable in RAW, it will be very doubtful that it's going to be an RP accepted photo no matter what you do to the cropping. The glint is probably not strong enough to overcome the sky.

The second photo is very similiar to this one already in the database:

And yours is suffering from a very overexposed plume / sky (the plume and the sky become one mass of white)
