I like the color one better, but I wonder if you lightened the gray-ish snow in the B&W one just it bit how it would appear. This is an excellent composition, in my view - so you've got a winner either way, my friend.

I will give your suggestion a try Jer. I didn't want to loose the highlights in the snow though a small push in lightness in that are may work. JIM

I vote for the B&W, 2nd version. The wood doesn't have much natural color to it or other detail being lost in the conversion, stripping away the color adds interest, I think.

Looks like the snow is pretty deep still wherever that cabin is, must have been a tough hike!

Now, I'm leaning towards the B&W, and I think I like the brighter second version. Either way, as I said, this is a remarkable composition. Do you ever shoot a bad one anymore, JIM?

Great job.

I hate to say this but it was right on the side of the road. One of those roads where you go "I wonder what is down here." Luckily the truck had four wheel drive. Great day with a couple of folks I know that shoot Nikon. JIM
