Hi Anthony,

It is a bit difficult to tell if there is a systemic issue with your pictures because you do have a tendency to photograph subjects that are either dark themselves, or in dark settings. Looking at the shot with the guy jumping snow dunes with a snowmobile, it does appear that the shot is a hair underexposed, or perhaps the highlights have been killed off just a bit too much. It's not way off, it's just a hair darker than I would make it if I were editing it.

I assume that you are using a histogram. That will tell you if you have the extremes adjusted correctly and will give you at least a rough idea on the mid-tones. As I'm sure you know however, it is possible to have a decent-looking histogram and still have the shot look a bit under/overexposed.

My RP stuff is here.

Link to my Flickr Albums. Lots of Steam Railroad stuff there from all over the US.
