I'm in a minority here obviously, but I prefer the "real" version with tracks, footprints and all. Two reasons for this:
- Although you did a great job cloning and smoothing the very large area of snow it still somehow doesn't look quite right to my eyes... difficult to tell on a monitor rather than a large print, but the cloned areas seem to have lost some of their texture and sparkle.
- Compositionally, I quite like the tracks. Apart from giving some texture, they help lead me into the image.
