I’m a novice too, so I don’t think I should offer any specific technical advice, but I do think your photos have promise. There is some stunning light in a lot of these photos, and anyone can recognize that they have good composition.  I can say for sure, though that there’s a lot more to being a photographer than raw talent. You must study hard on the technical side of it. Reading through forums, watching workshops, and seeking out critiques for my own photos has helped me enormously.

Like I said, you seem to have a very good sense for composition, but that and white-balance is about all you can control with a point-and-shoot. The next step I would take would be to get a DSLR and learn on how to control everything about a photo in manual mode.
