Clear and bright, Ronnie. The 'coldness' seems to show better in this colour version, and the detail is more discernable with the aid of colour.

I agree with the other accolades, Ronnie; this is very special. Nice to get the feel of isolation from the diminutive cottage with the hills behind it. The FG colour nicely contrasts the snowy backdrop. I like that your PoV allows the sweep of the right hand hill to take off from the cottage, leading your eye through the frame nicely. To help that, I might have been tempted to take a wee bit more off the FG water, perhaps 1/3 in order to allow the left hand hill reflection to better lead your eye across the water to the cottage. A minor suggestion only in a terrific image!
