Re: There's nothing wrong with your camera

What the others have mentioned is right on the money - there are many small things that are all contributing to your images appearing the way they do. Here's a quick edit of each - just bumped contrast, adjusted white and black points with levels, and converted to SRGB.

One thing to keep in mind is that a camera does not see the same way that we do. These images simply have a very narrow tonal range and are underexposed as well. That's a recipe for flat images.

Try using the histogram to do a quick assessment of the initial exposure, and if it isn't right adjust your settings so that you are "shooting to the right". It's taking me some time, but it's slowly becoming second nature.
