Photos very dull and uninspiring

Just started out taking photos with my Canon 400D and 50mm 1.8 prime.

Went to the local park and done a few shots of just things. Not looking for critic on the style or content of the pics its just the brightness and contrast of how they have come out. They were mostly shot on  program mode  so I would have thought the camera would do all the lighting stuff . I had ISO set on 100 and P on the setting. Also i had manual focus on most as trees and twigs can confuse the auto focus system at times. Is it just the light of the day was what it was, fairly overcast. Any advice will be great. Comparing similar photos on my iphone and the iphone photos seem so much brighter and colorful.
