Hi Richard,
I like the horizonthal shot most. Since you're into PS anyway, why  
not darken the shore at the horizon a bit to make a difference  
between water and land?
Also, if you want to evoke ruggedness and desolation in winter, maybe  
tone the image a bit cooler. As it is now, it looks like a pretty  
warm and comfortable day.
And finally, to enhance this winter feeling, maybe a little bit more  
contrast and sharpness in the front portion of the image? As if  
printed on a harder paper.

Thanks for showing,
