I wanted to show the difference here between the color and why switching to B&W was a good option. Cheers JIM

Nice conversion of a nice scene Jim, I think a tiny bit more contrast might make it even better.

Check out the most recent 'Outdoor Photographer' there's an article discussing the virtues of shooting B&W in the winter.

Thanks Gary, always a little worried about pushing the contrasts too much on foregrounds like this but will give it a try. JIM

Looks good to me, I know it won't be to everyones taste but it's got the full tonal range. The mountain has more definition.

I love mountain shots, and don't mind the initial colour image. However the B&W, particularly the high contrast one - really shows a lot of detail and interesting light on the mountain itself, nicely done. Looks a bit like you can see a wisp of steam coming from the top too

Don't know if its steam or blowing snow. I think the latter. Appreciate you looking and commenting. JIM

I'm still sticking with the "low" constrast B&W one - perhaps simply because I saw it first and my initial feeling continues to dominate my thinking.

I typically enjoy (and shoot) B&Ws that are edgey and constrasty, but there's something really unique about the misty first rendition you posted.

Anyway, what do I know? - but it's fun to think about.

Everyones taste is slightly different and the higher contrast was done for Gary. I do prefer the original too Jer. JIM

Appreciate the comments Mike. Adjusting contrast could be tricking giving the lighting on the shot. Cheers JIM

Colour for me also Jim, with some minor tweaks to salvage some of the highlight detail on the mountain and colour adjustments on the sky and foreground.
It's a pleasant scene even with its central composition.

I did think about the composition Ash and didn't have many options as I was using my 70-200 at around 188mm. I am now playing with the colors and will post the completed work. JIM
