#1 is not over all in focus and the shot invites to either have a small strip with the date in focus or the whole watch but not in between like it is now.
Why did you crop the rim off the watch in #2 - nice sharp though.
#3 is nice but you cut off the bottom of the icicle. A little bit more may be? Nice sharp shot but the composition is not to my liking.
#4: Just a middle of the road winter scene. May be a bit more saturation and/or contrast - Looks a bit flat.
#5 is a nice idea. But there should have been more bright colours in both sections above and below the brown railing. And I think the railing should run "symmetrically" i.e. the distance from the top left to the brown strip should be the same as the distance from the lower right end of the strip to the bottom of the image. And there seems to be glass behind that railing? That spoils it a bit.
But the idea is good and you certainly show that you have a "photographers way" of looking at things.

1) I am going to try and re-shoot that one.
2) I used a tripod for that shot, and was actually holding the watch in my hand. Had nothing at the moment to actually secure it in a certain position.
3) I'll admit it was a fairly random shot. This was at my aunt's place in Maryland, USA. Took it literally a minute before heading out to the airport to catch my flight out. Wish I could have taken a couple more and composed it better.
4) I'm no expert at this post processing business. :P All of these were shot in RAW and just slight adjustments to color, etc. were made. I've seen a number of people's landscape shots on here and I'm amazed at how sharp they manage to get them. Not even sure why I added it in here, lol. I hate it. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong though. Whether it's the aperture, some camera setting, etc. I don't know.
5) Thanks for the comments on this one. I can't remember whether I was trying to keep the railing parallel to fence behind or not. But I can definitely see what you are trying to say.
Appreciate the feedback. It's nice to get a fresh pair of eyes on my work, to point out stuff I wouldn't normally notice, or just look over. Thanks a ton.
