I took a few pictures that are somehow bugging me. They were taken at a local motorcycle association function. The color and exposure are the two biggest things that are troubling me. As an aside, I had an injury that has left me with a misaligned bone in my left wrist (getting it hopefully fixed next week) so I didn't have a lot of strength to move the camera and get the best compositions. But input on composure is welcome as well.

I think I might have posted this in the wrong section, can a moderator move it to the critique forum?

IMO I think the color & exposure look just fine. Composition looks good too. Good luck on the wrist fix...............tw

In terms of color and exposure, I think they good.. Id say that a bump in contrast would give you a little pop..
