Are you using Auto Levels? The first two photos look as if that is the case. Sometimes that tool works great, but most of the time it is garbage. The photos look oversharpened to me.
I'd agree with TJ
here, I think you have over done the levels and the hue/saturation a bit.
I never use the auto levels, thats if you have. Be carefull when adjusting the hue as too much can look out of place. Usually around 10-15% is acceptable. You just want to bring the colors out a bit, but not too much. Also watch the jaggies on the logos as well. Do you use the duplicate layer technique and rub out the jaggies?
Also as Gary says, min size is 1024 x *** I use 1024 x 683 and try to keep the ratio 3:2.
The first and last shot are good and I like the third best, motive wise, if you want to you can send me one and I'll have a go at them and you can have a look at the process I use, but send me the original out of the camera.
Hope this helps
