I would darken the highlights in the sky try to recover more detail and enhance the drama.

I’ll give that a go!

A classic b&w landscape, but it lacks that special something… Perhaps a second visit with better light?

I must agree with Kent. It is a nice shot but without the impact you are looking for in a b&w landscape. Perhaps try Roberts suggestion with the sky. I love dramatic skies in my landscapes.

Thanks John! In process!

This definitely deserves a second visit, at earlier or later hour for softer light, a nice and long exposure with an ND filter will make this shot a magnificent input for some nice post-processing.

I agree Federico! Thanks!

Hi Bruce, I agree with what everyone has said already. It’s a terrific ‘Ansell Adams’ type of scene which could use some PP to bring out the contrasts in the image by darkening the blacks and softening the lights. I’m assuming that edits are OK with you. That choice seems to have gone from our profiles recently so fingers crossed its OK. Here’s what I came up with anyway…

Really nice Edit Graham!! Thanks!! I like it a lot, and will try to replicate it as best I can. I am amazed at how you were able to keep the tree reflections in the lake, even as much as you darkened the image.
I welcome edits, comments, suggestions and everything else. I’m here to learn!
