opgr...why the moody rendition, its been processed to were i like it and were i think it looks its best, obviously it could be made a lot darker or lighter...personal subjective taste territory i think. Your version for me looks very flat, it has taken on a monotonal appearance with mid-tones predominating with very little separation of tonal values across the whole image, the sky particularly has suffer and lost a lot of its impact.
The sky has no interest in it whatsoever, creating excessive contrast doesn't create that interest and just makes the transition look odd and unconvincing. And yes, sure, we are all entitled to our differences in taste, but that wasn't the question and primarily kills conversation.
Obviously you think this conversion makes it look best, otherwise you wouldn't post it. The question is *why* do you think it is? What in particular did you try to accomplish? For example, I can imagine that being there, that those clean deep blue skies are very impactful and something that might be remembered and taken home. So, at home, doing a B&W conversion, one could choose to make the sky more "impactful", and the cabin is of less interest so you don't mind it to blend in with the background.
umm re yellow/green not seeing a lot of that myself have to say, are you viewing on calibrated monitor?
Yes, i am viewing on a calibrated monitor. Considering I see a lot of stuff in the darktones that most people either don't see or don't care about, i have to conclude that IF my monitor is off, it is most likely showing too light. And both of these images look too dark to me, and the lake, instead of icy cyan, looks cobalt-blue.
But there is no substitute for measuring, so if you're interested you might measure the RGB values in the red circles depicted in the attached image and then check back and see what other people make of it. The colorbalance in this image looks wacky to me, in the same sense that the colorbalance can be thrown off by a UV cut filter. Plus the colortemperature may not be optimal simply because it is very hard to define a proper whitebalance for early and late light shady environments like these. The colortemperatures required to correct for these are in the 20K range.
