I don’t know the specs on this image because I’m using some old Nikon glass that doesn’t communicate with my Olympus camera.

Wonderful image, Michael. It is perfect for a B&W conversion, which accentuates the textures and tones. I love the way the light/fog snakes through the picture giving it added depth. Have you considered boosting the contrast to highlight those patterns even more?

This turned out real nice and I think the B&W conversion works beautifully here. The atmospherics with the fog create a quite the mood and I love all the textures in the larger version. I also like the way the ridgelines alternate as the eye travels into the frame. I was thinking along the same lines as @Kerry_Gordon about a little more contrast so here my idea.

Really nice atmospherics and mood on this one. I like the suggestions and redo from @Ed_Lowe and @Kerry_Gordon. No others thoughts, I quite like this one.

Really nice Mike, I love the way the fog is rising up here. With the zigzagging ridgelines, this composition reminds me very much of the view from the top of Crawford Notch in NH.

I like the extra contrast @Ed_Lowe added in his rework, I think the darker spruce trees create more visual interest. It also makes the foreground a stronger entry point into the scene., before your eyes drift up with the fog.
