Too mundane to get more than a casual glance, or has the manipulation of light caused a closer look....

I noticed no one has commented on this but your question is a good one so I thought I'd chime in. I hope you don't mind.

Your initial assessment is a good one and shows that you should trust your instincts. That said, there is something pleasant about the subject and your chosen composition that does make it appealing, in a way, to garner more than just a passing view. The one fault that works against you with this image is that the texture, which I find to be the strongest part (in combination with the light) of the image is too soft. I would have loved to have seen the texture of the snow accumulating on the slats of wood sharper. That little difference, I think, would have made this a stronger image.

Other than that, I love the way you maintained the tonalities of light and dark. In particular, the interplay of light/dark/light/dark on the left with it's counterpoint of darl/light/dark/light on the slats to the right (while maintaining that slivered line of highlights on the tops of them).

Nicely spotted and nicely processed.

the shot is interesting - the alternating patterns and textures really make it work.

Glad this was resurrected, especially in August, when snow looks like a welcome anomaly rather than a nuisance.

I like the geometry and the tonalities. You have an eye for the geometry of such as this, and should do it more often!

I also like a pano crop of the (approximate) central third, for a more abstract look.
