    Darn! It's still darker than I was aiming at but I cleaned up the HDR artifacts (mostly) and fixed the composition a tad. I'll leave the other version for now if anyone wants to compare and contrast.

    It's an interesting and fun shot Paul. It's focusing through the laid out logs to the glow beyond the hills; even the arrow shaped puddle helps. It seems that having moved back a little more, reveling more of the streaming clouds above, helps direct us better toward the center, if a little more. The contrast on the boat haul from the previous color version helps us focus, direct, better also, while adding variety of tone and character to it. We can still feel the glow in the B&W image for sure! Cheers.

    In truth it is hard to "move back" when you are still working with the original picture. I used content aware fill to fill in the sky after enlarging the canvas size at the top and cloned in the tip of the rib on the right. Also I can't take credit for the puddle. I didn't really notice it. If I had I think I would have tried to take a picture of the sky reflected in it. I think there was a good shot there that I missed.

    Very nice, the drama is strong and I love the texture...
