    Not bad. Don't feel bad about yourself.
    Some tips:
    1. Many of your photos have a greenish cast. Check your white balance setting and if that doesn't help, fix the image in your favourite editing program.
    2. Some of your photos are under-exposed. Lengthen the exposure a bit and bracket if unsure.
    3. Many of your images have a dull tone. Set your camera's image tone settings to bright, vivid, high sharpening, high contrast etc. but don't go overboard. You can also fix this in your image editing program in your computer.
    4. Objects block your subject in many photos. Move yourself and your camera so the obstructions are out of the way. I know that there is no time to do that with animals but you can with landscapes.

    Hope that helps.

    But they are not that sharp. How to get more sharper pics? Is the kit lens bad ?

    You need to increase your depth of field! Zoomout, use a smaller aperture, or stand back further.

    I thought those were blurred on purpose! In the second pic, do you want the rock in focus and the trees out of focus? If so, maintain the focus distance but increase the f number (smaller aperture). Or... don't you dare say this... were you shooting in AUTO :O and autofocus focused on the rock instead of the the trees! I hope not!

    The sharp part in those pics are as sharp as it gets. Just increase the aperture. f/5.6 should be good.
