Looking at the B/A, it just looks like contrast was increased via dodging and burning. The editing is a little sloppy from a retoucher's standpoint, and doesn't really have anything to do with DoF from a photographer's standpoint. If more than one person says the same thing, you might want to listen. :)

you have a good start. I'd do some reading on basic composition. Take the time to study what looks good, and how to create a frame for your work. Keep it up. :)

Your colour grading has improved. :) I really like the mountain scapes. You're incorporating tonal value into your shadows. Very nais.

I know, that's what I though I will do but.... tooo lazy atm :D

I hate to say it, but this attitude is going to hinder you so much in the long run. 

When someone takes the time to point out things that could help you, don't make excuses for the things they point out that you know and admit are flaws. Am I asking you to go back on your vacation to fix your mistakes? Absolutely not. I'm hoping that the next time you whip out your camera, you're more conscious of things that are keeping you from creating something more beautiful. I don't post my advise for you to follow to the T, nor do I expect you to revisit past subjects to shoot photos the way I like. What I do expect however is for you to take at least a little bit of what I say in mind, so that the next time you shoot a star photo or plant photo, or what have you, you think "Why did my previous photo not capture my audience? How can I make this work without having a cluttered canvas? What can I take with me to help me achieve the look I want? How can I make this look better than before?" 
The moment you become comfortable with your work, is the very moment something needs to be improved. 

 

Also a little tip: You may not be able to move cables, but you can move yourself. There's a lot of sky. Explore a little before settling for the perfect shot... Work for it.

Your focus is hit or miss. For still subjects I prefer using autofocus while manually selecting a focus point on my viewfinder. Faster moving subjects usually move too fast for autofocus to keep up with, in which case I use a rapid shutter. While the shutter is releasing I move my focus slightly while trying to keep a frame around the subject. At least one shot may or may not make it into your portfolio. If not, wait, and try again. Hope that helps. Good luck :) 

 

Also really keep in mind what is going on in your canvas. Your star photos look cool, but the telephone lines keep me distracted from the point.
