ok just quickly... the background on your daffodil is a bit cluttered and detracts from the strength of your shot- try using photoshop to take away the background entirely, and to just boost the contrast of the shot a little. On the leaf shot there is no colour to the sky which is technically a 'fault' ; avoid this by shooting first thing in the morning or in the evening when they sky has more tone and colour, or if its a typical grey day you could use filters depending on what camera you have; or you could crop the shot to take out this grey area.

That said though I definitely think you have an eye for the camera and if i were you id stay away from learning too much 'technical' stuff and instead immerse yourself in learning about arts photography, youd be great at it.
