You don't need to edit your pictures yet. get comfortable and capture everything in the frame. No need for the sepia/b and w until you got the photo basics.

The last one had potential if you snapped it a little later. There is not to much you can do with a point and shoot but the last one had the guy in the frame and was clear.

i agree, you dont need to be doing advanced post stuff yet. learn everything you can about light and composition.

it's too dark, the vignetting is way overdone, and we cant really tell what the flag says(obviously we can since you told us) but without that it would be more difficult to figure out, and the background is too busy.

they're all underexposed and the composition is lacking. 3 and 5 you are cutting off the handle bars. you dont always have to have the subject in the middle of frame. like maybe putting your bike up against the fence, and framing it up by placing it in the right hand side of your viewfinder.

all of them are underexposed and the composition is pretty poor in all of them. i guess i just dont like the location for the bike as it blends in with the background but keep practicing.

underexposed meaning dark. it looks like your using a kodak p&s. try raising the EV by 1 or 2 values. there should be something in your camera's manual telling you how to do it.
