love the compasition, but i feel that the lighting is a bit harsh.

i think the same shot on a cloudy day and play with the aperture a bit and this

would make a great poster.

the roof is a bit too hot (overexposed) which tends to draw your eye to it and not allow it to scan the whole shot..

other than that its a pleasing image that captures winter in a rural area well..

Scot, thanks for the quick reply. I will work harder on my techniques. Sometimes I don't remember (or slow down) to check all my settings before taking the shot. I know...... PATIENCE!!!

Dustin, welcome back. Is there anything that I can do to "fix" the overexposed roof in PS4.0? Thanks for commenting!

you could try selecting it using a magnetic lasso or magic wand.. i am assuming similar tools as CS2..

then you can go to shadow/highlights and bring your highlights down a bit..

play with it a bit, you should be able to improve it..

also, how did you do your black and white conversion? sometimes using a specific filter effect or method can lead to some blown highlights and such.
