    Stop doing this.​

    They also seem to have exposure issues, and did you shoot the last 3 in a moving vehicle by chance?

    everything looks so soft and no details from the grass. They all blend in together.

    The water pic just doesn't have the color to make it look nice.

    the first two are flat.

    on the second two scenes there's not enough focus on the subject with scenes without much else going on. you have a tiny waterfall. capture just it. you have an interesting truck, capture just it.

    overall a nice start. your photos look a lot like mine did a year ago. research the Rule of Thirds. That should be a good place to start - Good Luck!

    Ok thanks for the tips! After looking a little more at them, I agree that the background is a little boring...

    Just played around with the curves and exposure, and sharpened it a tad.
