Snow-capped Snowdon, highest mountain in Wales..mono conversion

 Following on from my last post I've just converted this photograph of a snow-capped Snowdon to mono and would appreciate feedback

 Thanks

At the risk, as ever, of upsetting Russ by suggesting a crop, I think it would work better without the bottom third. I find the big rock in the foreground a distraction.

I do not find the rock distracting, for me it provides a sense of scale. I find the reflection of the mountain too bright.

I like the composition as is. The rock provides both a sense of depth, as well as placing a natural object in front of the almost graphical drawing in the back. The latter being the interest of the image for me. I do find the reflection too bright as well, also makes a slightly artificial look. Plus I also find the rather visible USM borders distracting. For screen output, it wouldn't need that much imo.

edit: the mountains in the back could use a little more separation from the sky.

 Thanks, great feedback again...completely agree about the too light reflection, now adjusted slightly. For me the rock is important, take it away and there's no foreground which pretty changes it to a "snap"
