Re: How could I have improved these?

To be honest, I think you should look into better equipment. The xz1 is a nice cam, but it's still compact. Something like a 7D would open up a world of possibilities for you, so I'd look into an upgrade in equipment because I think that's more than 50% the problem here.

Wow suddenly there's a deluge of helpful replies

Thank you all for your replies. I sincerely appreciate them. I suppose I've learned a few things just by this thread alone:

1) Get a book and learn about the rule of thirds

2) One man's meat is another man's poison - i.e. any number of us could hate a certain photo, but any number of different people could also love it (I guess that's art isn't it? Just like how I still don't get the Mona Lisa)

3) Practise thinking through my shots. In my defense I did try that out with my tree shot. But certainly not in as much depth and detail as I could have. So thank you for that
4) Be guided by the 'rules' of photography but don't be enslaved by them

I'll certainly look out for that Understanding Exposure book you recommended.

Once again, thank you for all the replies, and for all the drama too!
