    They lack definition. What is the subject of 1? The handle? The idea of number 2 is good, but although it's a railing that's where it stops. The rest of the scene is somewhat unidentifiable. The wall looks strange with the sudden change on the right. With 3 and 4 what is the subject? If it's the water drops then are they supposed to be frozen or was that a mistake, and if it is the water drops they blend into the background and are hard to distinguish.

    What you're missing is a clear direction of how to get what you see across in the photo. Think about your subject. Think about how to compose a shot so that the photo is unquestionably about the subject.

    I like the concept you were trying to achieve in the second one...leading lines. I would've liked to see there be a strong point of focus in the front, leading the eye down the railing. Another angle might make it more interesting.

    I am kinda new to this so take any of my advice with a grain. Any area with extremely high contrast will attract the eye like a magnet. (Photo 1, the dark area under the folded card.). Anything with sharp focus in a photo with shallow depth of field will attract the eye (photo 2 the rail attachment thingy). When in doubt get closer to your subject. Remember the rule of thirds.

    I found this page extremely good for learning to compose.

    The way you improve your "shooting skill" is by shooting.
