Hi Kent, nice job here. I think I like the first best because it has a more open feeling in the treetops.

Maybe you got the storm that blew through here a couple days ago. This is what my front yard looks like.

I prefer #1, in #2 the dark water surface lacks reflections that my mind expects to see.

Winter wonderland - looks like a snow with short duration.

Regards,

Bob

Kent,
Snow? Already? Where exactly is your neck of the woods?

Processing excellent in both. Nice job preserving highlights, nailing the exposures. Maybe want to share your metering and any exposure adjustment info?

Compositions:
1. A familiar feel. The log barring part of the path. As cropped I think you have two competing subjects The log and path of the water under those overarching trees in the distance. The logs say stop. The rest says go. I would opt for a different crop/message, cropping maybe halfway up along the right edge of the large log. BTW, nice diagonals.

2. This one more effectively pulls the eye along the water, into the image. The light in the water seems to create a triangular shape, adding to the pull. The foreground sticks add to the natural feel of the scene, but pull my eye there first. I might clone out the lowest which most strongly pulls the eye away from the main scene.

Pleasant feeling. I'd suggest removing the twig that intersects the underside of the log in the first.

Thank guys ... much input to digest.

Scott ... as to the exposure, I shot to set my "white" snow to between 220 -235. My SLR/C has the ability to give RGB values at the pixel level when I chimp. Knowing that I had ultra-flat lighting and would be adding contrast in post, I wanted to leave myself some headroom.

Plus one at the crops & clones. Wanted to hear from others before I started down that path. Easy to get too "heavy handed" sometimes.
