1st one is a bit soft, 2nd is also a bit soft, though it'd probably be better if you resized it down to 1024 pixels wide, same with number 3. Number 4 is soft as well, could be resized down to 1024 and that would help, though it is also a bit compressed.

Are you processing your photos or just snapping and uploading. They lack a bit of color and contrast. A little blurry also. Try taking photos in better light. The day looks pretty overcast leaving very poor lighting.

Best thing to do, which is what I have done, is save a few photos from the database that are similar to yours and compare them to your own photos. This works wonders. Also, sitting at your computer for half an hour and continuing to edit will not do your picture any good. Get up and walk around and come back to it after 20 or 30 minutes. You'll be surprised with what you see.
Experimentation is key. Eventually, you'll get a photo accepted.

Hi Goran , thank you very much for your advice. I will give it a try again. Like what they said practice makes perfect, I will keep practicing until I get the hang of it.

Cheers
