J. Solitude
The composition and choice of B&W gives me the most sense of place. I can feel the solitude here. The others are very good work also, but this one conveys the feeling of winter the strongest to me.

Serenity

This picture by Trudi Sexton is simply elegant, I've seen other photo's by her and she is on a level above most others. She captured the picture in a way that makes you want to just stop and stare at it. She is a great photographer. The scene is pure winter beauty. She gets my vote.

They are all magnificent. That being said, I really feel drawn to both C and I. C because we always see that beach scene with the sand; contrasting to a winter view is surprise and I because finding that owl in the snow and capturing it so beautifully is a feat.
