If this is true, how can you know your photos are good or better than others here?

You want the sun behind you, which is "frontlit". Your shot is "backlit", meaning you're facing the sun. Additionally, not to pile on, but the sky is over-exposed (I dislike the term "blown out").

Please understand I don't mean to be harsh with my comments. I think you need to learn more about basic photography other than "instructions on the backs of disposable cameras".

Good luck
