    your colours seem a bit flat, u tried adjusting them in PS?
    #2 seems like u are using a too small aperture though
    of the lot, my vote goes for #3

    don't know which camera you are using, but the pictures look a bit blur, esp the 2nd one.

    Thanks for your comments guys..

    how do i make the colours sharper? Is it because of over exposure?

    I'm using a 350D, shutter speeds were quite fast, wondering why they will turn out a bit blur? maybe depth of view too shallow....

    Lemme take a shot in the dark here:

    You're using the 18-55mm with the camera set to take pictures at a very low resolution?

    not really.. i'm using 18-55, with cir-polarizer.. set at Medium file size mode, but i think after re-sizing, the edges seems a bit not refined....

    Would that be Medium/Fine or Medium/XXX. I'm not too sure abt Canon's settings for image size or resolution.
    You didn't happen to crop anything did you?

    No.. i was on Medium/Fine... didn't crop anything too... aperture was quite ok though (is 9.3 or 10 ok?) or should i have increased my aperture value?

    i think the 3rd was the best of all the four. the fourth i think you shld make it look longer. the first one will be alot better if you take it in a sunset or something. did you crop it? it looks abit "cropped", erms.. maybe you shld take it further away. when actually you could be able to see the grass plains also. i dun like the second one, erms.. abit loss of angles, dun really know the focus point. but good try, try to focus more on the points you want to take next time. it will work.

    The colours look quite ok to me. The apparent lack of sharpness may be due to aggressive JPEG compression.

    How did you resize the photos? They all seem a bit blur/out of focus to me.

    by the way you have dust on your sensor.

    colour looks ok to me
    blurness is there.

    as little wolf said, looks like due to jpeg compression setting is too low.
