I almost never try the B&W options, as I think it's done too often. But maybe on the snow pics that have lots of black (ice) and white (ice) anyway, it will highlight the landscape.
And thank for the compliments on the other picture. It was taken at Gian'ts Washbowl in the Adirondacks. The location was breathtaking and the picture is now a 60*80 cm canvas print on my wall
