Default Advice on 2 shots

Hi All,
I need some advice and assistance on a couple shots,maybe a screeners comment would help aswell.
Ive tried two different shots twice with the same edit,couldnt agree with "Bad Cropping" as it seems cropped centred than it got knocked back for "underexposed",was late afternoon sun but to myself light looks fine.

Next i tried these 2,first time around it got knocked back for "Poor Lighting",edited the brightness in photoshop and got rejcted for "Bad Cropping"

To me i cant work out why they were rejected and very frustrating without any information in rejection comments as to why,2 shots getting different rejection reason each time and than trying to fix up one original reject reason and getting it knocked back again for a different reason.

Thanks Trevor.

"Cropped centered" is exactly the problem; apparently you are not aware that many consider centered compositions on the dull side and instead look at "rule of thirds" alternatives. RP prefers "rule of thirds," as a rule. (Pun not intended, but hey, fortuitous!)

But why did you submit the very same image twice?

Second pair, also the subject is centered. As for lighting, I don't see the issue as stated - lots of shadows so while the day was hazy, cloudy is not the problem. I would consider dealing with the haze using Local Contrast Enhancement (= USM at around 20/60/0), this in addition to the usual sharpening.
