Hi Salil, yes, a great effort for your second attempt, I am impressed.

What equipment are you using? And what are the settings?

The one thing i might suggest is a slower shutter speed to bring out a bit more of the natural light in the background of your photos.

ok, that info is helpful. During similar natural light conditions try 1/60 on your shutter speed as those subject move slowly so you won't get motion blur. But, if its very sunny and shallow then 1/125 and 1/160 work well
