The mountains are perfect, and you achieved nice warm sunlight coming from the right on them. Whatever you do in the foreground, will need to have that same warm light on the right side. You can find references in photographs or just lakeside landscapes around you, to construct the foreground of your composition. I like your 'big rock', but it needs highlights, to define the shapes. Keep your darkest darks in that rock, because it's foreground, and must have more contrast than your mountain. Look at the trees in your area during early morning and late afternoon, when the sun is at a low angle, and study the highlights and shadows.

They are terribly constructed bushes with berries. I'd like to do more with mountains but I struggle with what to put in the foreground and since I wasn't working from a photograph and have little experience I completely messed it up by putting in the bushes at all. Really I wanted the giant rock gone too. I wanted to compose on-canvas and on the fly but I think this may be a fail in that department.

The mountain is spectacular, but you've got a reversal of the depth illusion: you have the great amount of detail in the distance, the least in the foreground. I don't know what the orangey brown things are in the lower left.
