Went to a nearby park in the late afternoon, took some pics but I'm not really happy with them. Besides critique of these specific photos I'd like some pointers/tips/experiences on how to shoot in this particular environment, as I'm having trouble taking a good picture even if I see something interesting/nice. Also, what to do with all these boring-ass grey/green/brown colours?

Love this one

The decent stand outs are the ones where you get in closer and focus on shapes or textures
I find it difficult to get landscape-y images in an environment as busy as that

You're taking shots you shouldn't be. And forest really isn't at its best right now. Especially when the sun is shining. Sparse leaves and sun combine for very high contrasting scenes. Very demanding shooting situations. You normally need some canopies to disperse the light when sun is out. You should be shooting meadows right now. Judging from the undergrowth, It'll take at least few weeks for greens to penetrate forest. Go back when all is green, improve your composition, and get a circ polarizing filter to help with high contrasting scenes, they do wonders with leaves of any kind. Also, go there midday, evening sun isn't very good for shooting in the forests because it's giving even harsher shadows, and ugly sun. It's different when you're shooting at the forest from longer ranges.
Exposure bracketing, fog, mist, rain, snow, panoramas, pathways, everything helps... Focus on details, flowers, leaves, trunk parts, look for cedars and bokehwhore. Closeup and macro in your conditions should work well, though.

Thanks, all of that makes sense.

This one's decent.

I think the main problem with the other park pics is that they're just like "here's a tree" which is hard to do in an interesting way. I don't have any really good advice other than just don't take those pictures, which isn't particularly good advice. Maybe just keep trying and see if you can find some way to take a picture of a tree that no one has done a million times before.

Aesthetically pleasing picture : good contrast, texture, well balanced composition. Only flaw : boring subject, but it doesn't matter.

When it comes to shooting specific objects in nature, lighting is one thing but so is the subject.

Considering that fallen trees, dead trees, rocks, streams, litter, etc., are actually normal occurrences (for better or worse), there's a need to actually take a step back from taking a photo and reflect on the subject's significance, if it's one of the above. Look at your surroundings or consider the location and think about whether that object may have an actual story or force behind it. Usually, you may find that you take only one or two or zero pictures with this approach, and that's good enough. It's hard to make actually good pictures if you're shooting to shoot.

I think there also comes a time when it would help to research your subject and really build a relationship with it.
