I like the color version a lot. However to me the left tree is somehow too much. A crop with just mountains a the right tree feels much less crowded. Beautiful shot in any case.
That left tree anchors the image, you don't want to remove it and create a shift imbalance.
It is just right the way it is.
Im just not a fan of the rainbow tech color..as one mentioned the point it goes purpleish blue...But, this image makes that perspective a little more pleasing.
