    Not my usual style but some shots cry out for b&w.

    Definitely a black and white shot, for sure. Such great textures!

    I personally would shave a bit off the bottom to get rid of that brush in front of the horizontal logs. I'd crop right up to where the dark meets the light on the bottom log. Then you emphasize the horizontal as a base, there are some diagonals as your eye moves up, and then it merges into the all vertical. The diagonals break the pattern of the strong horizontal/vertical pattern just enough to create those leading lines up, but the brush creates a bit too much tension and disruption, imho.

    Nicely seen as a B&W.

    Nice shot, I like the toning and the framing. You've managed to keep the focal point pretty central which is hard on these shots so it's well balanced image. I really like the snow!

    Very nicely done. Agree with Lenny's copping advice on the bottom. This image feels like one that would work very well printed to a non-standard ratio, that is very long and thin. Something in the 16x9 / 2x1 aspect.

    A'splain' me the title, Lucy?

    Black and white for sure.

    To me this is the kind of shot that grabs your attention. Then keeps the eye wandering through the nooks and crannies for other details. I believe there is a tree stand or other remnant amongst the upper limbs.

    Thanks for posting
