Ben, Two thoughts come to mind:
Perspective: where you place the camera.
Composition: what you include in the photograph.
When I was first deciding the kind of compositions I preferred, I'd find a scene that I liked (and had time to explore it), I'd pick a place where I liked the view (perspective). Then I'd shoot a variety of compositions from that place, i.e. zoom in, zoom out, aim down, aim higher, etc.
Then I'd move to another place and repeat the procedure.
When I had spent enough time there, I'd pack up and drive somewhere else entirely.
At home, I spent a lot of time deciding what perspectives and compositions I liked and what I didn't like.
After a while, I learned the kinds of perspectives and compositions I preferred, and concentrated on them.
Note: I paid some attention to photographs taken by others, but never tried to emulate any of them. Just quick looks and decided what I liked and why, and what I didn't like- and why.
In the era of digital cameras, the whole process should be much faster.
Ben- I've seen a couple dozen of your posted images, and I'm not sure what you think it is that you do weirdly. These two shots, for example, are not at all weird to me. Whether I would have chosen them if I were there- well- I don't know. But that doesn't matter. Take a big variety of shots, decide which you like the best, and process them the way you want.
Feedback on cropping and processing can be helpful, but I'm not so sure about composition suggestions- unless the other person is with you at the time you take the pictures.
Anyhow- just a friendly $.02 worth .
