Default Ottawa River Winter Land Scape

Hi everyone, I went out yesterday and tried my hand at shooting landscape for the very first time. Even though this is not the critique this photo section, any advise with regards to improving my photo's would be greatly appreciated. Someday with a lot of learning and practice I hope to be posting pictures as nice as Hards80 or Walter S. Hope you enjoy.

Steve, #4 would be my choice as it more closely follows the "rule of thirds". However, the sky and hills are overexposed, requiring some post-processing work. The shot needs more contrast. Better yet, shoot the scene early or late in the day to provide some shadows for better perspective/dimension. A CPL filter would help a lot.

Thanks for the advice Walter C. I recently downloaded Gimp for photo editing, but I am at a complete loss as to how to make it better ie I am not familiar with the terms used in the tool box, but I do agree that my pictures lack a certain pop. I will take your advice and re shoot. Thanks.
