because your links are all wrong.

click on the "paperclip" icon.

Can try resize to 800x600 and save as quality '9' or '10' jpeg. All of them are lacking sharpness.

since these photos were taken using e61i and SP500uz,i will not cover all the involved technical aspect such as shutter speed, aperture or noise.
however, they really looks underexposed.

i think major issue on your shots is the composition.
for example in pic #1, the car should be in the frame.
if u want to take shot of the sky, then focus on the sky first.
then, try to use surroundings as some additional elements to make your shots better.
same goes with pic #2.

for pic #3, i see that the clipping of the flower a bit odd.
the simplest way to capture the flower is from top angle.
then divert your shots to other angles that u find it interesting.
this is more like try & error experiments.

for pic #4, the photo is ok.
but again, to improve it, u need to exposed it longer by using slower shutter speed maybe around 10-15 seconds i guess.
not sure if your camera can do that.
and also, this photo lack of contrast.
use photo-editing software to boost the contrast.

for pic #5, again it is down to composition.
not sure what you are trying to shoot here.
one thing you should remember when shooting landscape like this;
if there's horizon, make sure it is horizontal.

overall, i think u got the idea, just that u need to work on some fundamentals first.
just keep on shooting, do research and i'm sure u'll get there.
don't worry bout these photos, i'm pretty sure u can do much better in the future.
keep it up!

I kind of like #3. I think your composition strikes it except some minor thing like clippings of the flower's petals.

In fact, the composition is refreshing as it includes a background that most of the flowers shots we do or at least i do, normally discard it by blurring it off.

However, you have to be careful when you include things in background cos it will affect the picture in overall..not just the flower and the toadstool. In the background, you include some bushes which is not interesting and a gazebo that got chop off it's roof which i think sort of defeats the purpose of including it at the first place. You might wanna watch out on this next time.

Anyway, I'm no angel as well...hehehe....cos i do often do this type of mistakes. So what we can do is just consistenly remind ourselves of this mistakes.

Cheers and continue your never ending journey to learn photography.

wow....constructive advises...thanks to both of you again! ...i think the SP500uz can extend the shutter speed till 15s i suppose...it's a compact PnS camera...it has quite a few manual controls as well...have to do more exercises i suppose..
