Having only started photography early this year, I'm no expert myself.
But here's my 2 cents : Some of your photos are nice. But like you said they lack something. It's your composition. They look normal. Just like how anyone would look at a subject and just snap away.
There's no wrong way to take a picture, but a scene may create equally appealing photos with different composition.
Experts will tell you about framing, contrast, balance etc...which till now I still get a headache. But my rule of thumb is just to try to look at a subject/scene with a different perspective and keep it simple. Yeap. It won't be easy. So practice is the keyword. And looking at more photos taken by experts helps alot to expand creativity.
