First template has more potential than second(my oppinion). You need to improve the header, alignment, texture, and typography(a bit).
Second template is too dark and to be honest it looks more like a free theme.
Improve your design skills and make something new.

What does “unique features” mean exactly , when here are thousands of templates ? I want to submit my theme here but I’m starting to change my mind. I don’t think newbies stand a chance.
When you are designing something the hardest thing is subjectivity. Listen to what people say, if a design is good then people will say so. I am not a web designer but I am a graphic designer and I know that to be too different means limiting your audience. You will not find a single website in the world which is unique, it’s very meaning means that it is impossible, for instance every goth thinks they are unique and different, from the millions of other goths (sorry went off on a tangent there).
What you can be is a good designer, understand which colours look good with others, understanding layout, white space, typography etc. When I have the luxury of time I go back a few days after creating a design and looking at it with fresh eyes.
Ashok ji, its good start but requires major improvements
you only fail if you stop trying.
