The one with the lake in the foreground has an attractive composition. Less sky and more lake might help it. It could use a bit more contrast I think. I feel like the lower parts of the mountains are shrouded in mist.

The other one has a confusing composition. Is the subject the peak or that round thing in the foreground? What is that round thing anyway? Less sky in this one too.

Exposure is good. You're bound to have blown out whites in this setting. It's snow after all. Yours are not out of hand.

In the first picture it is hard to tell which peak you intend to be the subject. The one closer doesn't look quite as interesting as the one in the background.
In the second picture I would have made the ridge across the valley the main focus of the picture.
Also, at that altitude the sky can be a striking shade of blue. Perhaps adjusting the saturation might bring the blue out.

to explain the pictures more, the first picture: the boring mountain was the subject Mt Brown in glacier park that I climbed to the top in order to obtain the second shot which was is a picture of a snow ghost tip with the mountain range in the background as well as the sky effect... this picture, of several I took that day stood out to me with the sun sparkling in the snow...I have never been overly fond of "over saturated" pictures trying to show what I saw when I took the picture...also working with a flat-screen monitor that I calibrate with a Spyder 3...I am always concerned about my image quality as compared with monitor/ printer/web.

I agree with this. While the foreground mountain has special meaning to you because you climbed it, the one behind is much more interesting to the viewer who didnt climb. As a record of your trip I would crop out the mountain behind so it doesnt steal the show. As an image that needs to stand on its own I would crop tighter on the mountain behind.
