Well, I like this one better than week 1 (although both are beautiful).
The shallow river (?) drawing the eye in is what tipped the scales for me.

Like this one - the ice on the stream rather than the continuous snow cover adds contrast and makes a more interesting shot (IMHO)

I definitely like this one as the snow is nice and white and the contrast is rich.

I love contrasty photos. The snow looks like icing. The tree shadows create such an interesting pattern.

Great composition. Nice contrast without it being too much, which is easy to do with tree/shadow vs. snow shots. Beautiful scene.

Really like the gentleness of the snow edges and the horizontal shadows. Maybe more definition in the trees, but it's a tough one with all that bright snow.

It looks way too cold for me, but this is a pretty photo. I like the shadows across the snow & ice. It might be interesting to combine two or three of these processed at different exposures to help bring out some detail in the top of the photo. Regardless, it's a beautiful shot.

love the contrast and the shadows in the snow.

love the extreme contrast! This would make a killer photo in frame for a pop on the wall. Stark, semi mysterious, and excellently shot.

Very stark and harsh looking. I like it.

Great shadows here. Love how my eyes follow the path around this photo.

Zebra snow! Love the curved path.

the trees are very black on my monitor, don't know if you made that choice, but I have noticed that sometimes the shadows get dark after uploading. Don't know why. Nice photo. Thought the walkway was going to be an iced river.

Beautiful black and white processing. I like the upper half and absolutely love the bottom half.

Nice strong contrast, but not too much. Well done...

I love the way the creek curves into the picture, and - what fabulous shadows!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow. Straight lines, both horizontal and vertical broken by the wave of the path. Great BW!

I like the way the frozen stream draws you into the shot. I don't know if you darkened the trees deliberately but I feel it's missing a bit of detail I would like to see.

I love it. I actually like the strong contrast. More details on the trees might distract from the main element you intended to show (I guess) - the shadows on the snow and the curved frozen creek. The black trees put a lot of weight and make me look at the creek and the snow.

Cool shot - both literally and figuatively. Really nice use of shadows.

I love the start contrasts. You just can't go wrong with trees and snow!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Like mitalapo, I would have liked to see a little more texture on the trees in the upper half, but otherwise very nice. Love the shadows.

A little more light at the top to separate the trees and this would have been perfect. The contrast makes it look like a woodcut print.

Beautiful black lines on the white snow.

awesome shot

Very nice shadow play and stark contrasts. Also like how the composition draws the eye in.

Those are pretty amazing shadows and so uniform. Great contrasting shot.

Very dramatic, nicely depicted

Ahhh, long shadows, I've been looking at these for a couple years trying to figure out how to make a decent shot of them. I like how these look so horizontal compared to the trees that look so vertical, but not quite vertical, sort of vertical falling over. I wish the trees at top had a bit better light, to see a bit more of their structure; it is difficult to make pictures in bright light such as in this scene. I also sort of wish the frozen creek were not cut off at far left. I do like the graphic feel of the image. I am wondering what hunkering down a bit further (getting closer to the snow to make the picture, or, a lower viewpoint) would do for a composition such as this one. Or maybe, climb a tree and make a picture from up high, hmmmmm. I like the little bits of snow at the sides of some of the trees.

Good start.
