When I processed through lightroom on "Auto," some of the pics looked blown out, but when I come back a day later, some of the images seem too dim.
The same images? In the same room with the same ambient lighting?
In this one, there's a glare on the ice & the histogram is far from the right side. I'd have pushed that glare more toward RGB 240, 240, 240, so the histogram was more to the right.

Personally, I don't like any "Auto", & it looks like you were shooting in some auto mode because your ISO is all over the place.
I realize that the light in the building varies across the ice, but I prefer RAW, which gives you a lot of latitude in PP before your camera throws a lot of image data away when it converts to jpg. For instance, look at: Why I love RAW - '53 Ford Sunliner
So in your situation, I would have taken a shot of the ice in some mode, put those settings in Manual, reshot at a higher ISO & chimped the histogram more toward the right side.
I'd drop your shutter speed down a bit, too. Look at this post: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php?p=6416835
