I know the "the best camera is the one that's with you", but the pixellation and poor metering by what I assume is a cell phone camera is a little too distracting for me here.

Just comes off as an average snapshot, I'm afraid. Not sure what to suggest on this shot. With those mountains in the background, perhaps an alternative, wider view would be more dramatic looking. Not sure...

not sure what to make of this....your foreground is very OOF an your back ground is very hazy...

I find the picture a bit to soft. The first row of plants are very distracting, a bit funny though because I see an out of focus pokèmon in the first one to the right. Had you gotten a bit closer instead of working the zoom (if that is what you have done) then the picture would be sharper. Also shot from a side of the building that reminds a bit more of an institute.

This is a good landscape photo. The content is a very worthy subject. You have all the great features of a well composed landscape... the shrubs in the foreground, the buildling occupying the midground and the mountains and sky in the middle.

There are a few things that I can see to improve this. I would take a look at the aperture setting. The foreground appears blurred. I am not sure if it from camera shake or from the f-stop chosen. Second, there is a definite line through the middle of the photo. It is the line that separates the base of the mountain from the foreground. I would use the rule of thirds and either increase or decrease the amount of foreground to change where that line hits. You might want to try to recompose this by changing the camera height from the ground or changing the angle of view. One last thing would be to try a polarizing filter. That would help with the haze that appears in the background. All in all this shot made me think about the techniques used and that is a great thing. My critiques were more for my own self improvement but I hope they were helpful for you as well.
