    1. Not very interesting. The tower is distracting.

    2. Seems soft to me. Focus off?

    3. What is the subject? And what does it say to you?

    4. Better composition but doesn't interest me.

    5. I like the colors but see #2 and #3 above. Perhaps the softness is due to dumbing down the resolution?

    Sorry, but I agree with 'SoonerBJJ'. To me, there's really nothing interesting about any of those photos.

    Why did you take them?

    Sooner is pretty much right on with his critique (probably why you aren't getting a lot of responses)

    To go a bit deeper, 3/5 need some separation so that it is clear what exactly the subject is. In number 2 the subject is clear because you have identified the one flower (though it looks like a plastic flower to me which almost instantly drops viewing appeal). In 3/5 there are a number of flowers, and branches etc. What should we be focusing on? the bunch as a whole is not interesting.

    1 is the only one with a somewhat interesting subject (to me). The others could be made more interesting, but I would continue to work on getting more interesting subjects and defining the subjects more. For #1 I would recommend cropping out the building at the bottom and the tower at the left. Also, I might recommend playing with the levels to get darker blacks. It should make the image pop a bit more.

    here is an example... quick and dirty (i.e. about 45 seconds thus not perfect) (done because it says your image is ok to edit)

    You don't need color to make a good photograph.
