A few comments as you asked:
1. I agree with the others and would have cropped bottom off- ideally I would have started bottom picture where it changes texture tro flags and taken out the first two posts. I would also have wanted to capture more of the water and opposite bank if the aim was to show the stillness of the water. As it is composed the emphasis is on the figure and certainly would be more so with suggested crop.
2 Does not do much for me - hard when you get these grey skies as they just white out - hdr approach might have got soemthing but altogether not enough subject interest for me. Slight horizon level adjustment needed - or maybe it`s just me
3. yes the turbines are needed in what is a relatively flat landscape - I`d have aimed to make them even more of a feature by losing the grass in front and ideally - if moving - slow down shutter speed to get some movement in them and get in closer.
4. Nice water movement but I`d have liked to have seen the full spread of water - disappears off picture to left or alternatively closer focus in on right side and lose that area as it is such strong colour in comparison. hard to know how the land lies without being there though and the textures and water movement is nice.
