They don't look too bad, try levels/curves/saturation in PS, I think you need to up some in-camera settings or shoot early morning / late afternoon as the light is usually better for photography. H

It looks like maybe you're dropping the contrast a lot or something.. what steps are you going through when you process your images?

I open the raw file on cs3 , adjust the exposure , WB and such then increase the saturation
