    Both for me.

    I have a location and tree that is almost exactly the same but never shot it due to the distracting poles and cables on both sides.

    Bobo, no poles or cables here, but a hay stack at top of hill on right.

    Lucky you.

    Mine is also a lovely tree and certainly picture worthy. Must learn how to make those poles and wires look good.

    Very nice shoot. I vote for the color image, I feel a great harmony in those colors

    I like the color version but the road keeps drawing my eye. I'm not sure what to do with it. Maybe desaturate the yellow line a bit. The asphalt also seems shinier in the color version. Both are very good though. I'd be happy to have done either.

    Hi Jack,

    You had me staring at this one for more than 15 minutes, thinking what I would have done with the shot - thanks Jack.

    Seems to me you like shooting high key. Looking at the histogram you will see a lot of clipping to the right, hence the blown out sky. With the white tree you would like to have a darker background. Shooting to far to the right, even in RAW, you lose the data to make any corrections in PP. (You pack too much data into a photon and it "overflows" blowing the data away.)

    I like the composition.

    I like the color version. Juxtaposing the high-contrast, simple road with the minute details in the frozen tree is pretty cool. I think some of that's lost in the B&W conversion.

    Though I am a big fan of monochrome, I'd say color this time!
