Here are a few shots:
The first is one of my least favorites. I feel as if there was much more I could have done to make it interesting, rather than just snapping a photo in passing. This is black and white since in hopes to make it a more interesting ...
@OldRattler and CamperJim offer sound advice for a particularly difficult genre - typically what one sees as a fantastic image others see as little more than a snapshot.
I've reworked #1 a bit - if you object I will remove the image. First, recovered detail from her clothes and backed down the contrast a bit for what to me is a better view of her facial features and expression - which is actually the story. Obviously the crop helps isolate the subject and also reduce clutter and distractions. Also, I selectively blurred the back and foreground to help focus on the subject. Finally, a light vignette, which I happen to like, others perhaps not. I like your choice of BW as the light and tones help focus one's attention.
Other very general observations -
#2 has no appeal to me.
#3 - cliche but why did you not wait for the ball to strike the pins?
#4 - Is the subject the tree or man cutting the trunk?
Re composition -
#2 - no leading lines, action, or anything to attract and hold one's attention.
#3 - obviously all lines lead to the pins (hence where is the ball?)
#4 - all lines run mostly horizontal - pretty much static and lacking in interest.
#1 - lots of diagonals (bench position, lines of bench boards, shelving lines, bend in her arm, legs, etc) leading/pointing to the subject, plus general nice light/dark play of left versus right half of image.
Anyway, my 2¢ and best of luck on your project. Looking and comparing the early versus later images ought to be fun and very interesting,
Afterthought - #1 violates the rule-of-thirds, etc. but to me still works - don't be a captive of rules
