Thanks for the comments. I tried to keep the detail in the snow there, but not dominant, as the water and ice is the most interesting part of the photo to me with the white acting as a separator. I may come back to this and adjust for more detail, however the prints I've made do show detail.
You've seen the prints, of course, and I've not, but I think that even with some detail in the snow, #1 wouldn't work: the band of white is just too dominant. #2, of course, would be even better.
