Lyons Overlook on a Snowy Day
Lens: Pentax DA 16-45 Camera: Pentax K-x Photo Location: Roxborough State Park, Colorado ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F22 

Lyons Overlook at Roxborough State Park on a snowy day. I went for a "mocha" preset and think it worked really well for the image. Let me know what you think.

The scene is pleasant and the composition decent. The monochrome processing is very good.
The detail and texture is all there, but what the image seems to lack is good use of the tonal range.
As such, contrast and brightness are significantly down.
An application of levels would fix this quite well - adjust your highlight sliders towards the first highlight pixel level and you'll quickly see how much brighter and brilliant this image can be.

Thanks for the tip Ash. I uploaded the replacement to Flickr, so it's reflected in my original post.

Looks better mate.
And with just a touch of shadow/highlight treatment, specifically to bring out some more of the texture in the snow highlights, this would be beautiful.

There is not enough "black" in the picture.

I'm afraid neither work for me. The trees on bottom right seem too close and too cropped, the far away cliffs seem too blown out.

I'm curious to see the colour version.
