Re: How could I have improved these?

You can learn a lot from this book:
Bryan Peterson: Understanding exposure (now 3rd edition)

It explains very clearly not just how to get correct exposure (combination of shutter time, aperture and ISO), but also how to achieve "creatively" correct exposure (the right shutter time and/or the right aperture for the desired effect). Don't shy away from it if you think this topic is too advanced at the moment, just take it step by step. You will be coming back to this book for advice time and time again as your skills improve. I still do (I have the 2nd edition of it). You will also get some tips about composition from this book, but you will be better off by getting something else as a tutorial on composition. To learn about exposure, however, this book is definitely one of the best.
