    Wow, that is some beautiful country. The sky looks pretty blown out in most of them, though shooting at different times of day might give better results (early morning or late afternoon). Also you can bracket your exposures and combine them in photoshop using layers or maybe try hdr.

    I'm going to make two suggestions;

    1. Embed your photos into the thread.

    2. Buy a book, an actual book, on basic photography that has a good section on composition, and then of course, read it.

    It's my opinion that composition rules over technical aspects. Develop a skill in composing your photos and the rest just falls into the slots.

    ^^^ agreed.

    Unless you're going for more advanced/adventurous composition stick to the "Rule of Thirds" (Google it, I'm lazy! ;) )

    Also ask yourself what is the focal point of the photo i.e what is it your attention (read eye!) is drawn to in the first second?

    ^^ +2

    Also, find the command Rotate Canvas Arbitrary and adjust accordingly.
