Personally the black and white is the winner in my book. Very dramatic.

highlight are blown. for landscapes a very simple effective technique is use tripod and bracket the shot. Then you have plenty of options when processing the picture .

I personally try to avoid blow highlights also, but for this instance, it's just water so there's really no "detail" that's being blown out. I kind of like the blown out highlights.

I think the B&W one here takes the cake. The green shrubbery is distracting in the colored version.

personally I like my B&W first try... the color difference in the stone cliff is more pleasing to my eye

i like the b/w the color is too busy, the b/w simplifies it into a very pleasing image.

B&W (1st version) is very nice, but the leaves in the lower right are a bit distracting to me. I'd darken them or clone them out.

I kinda like the color version best but I think the colors should be richer...like this edit of mine.

Joe, holding back on the whites in the b&w makes the water look better but not the rocks so I'd suggest doing is selectively.
