It feels fake.

Did you add the motion blur in postproduction? Feels like it.
The absence of exif, not letting us know the shutter speed, tends to confirm this impression.

If you want to fake long exposure, motion blur is good for the sky, but a gaussian blur is better for a water surface like the lake one, to have a "silky" feeling.

The mountains feel a bit too soft, not sharp enough, with blunt edges. You may want to increase a bit the sharpness in camera raw or whatever software you use.

TThat said, the color conversion is pretty nice even if you lost some details in the darker areas of the forest, and I like the picture overall.
I used the same technique in the past, and I know it can be very effective.

An impressive composition with a real sense of drama and a dynamic aesthetic.

Thank you! A sense of drama was what I was going for with the black and white.

You're most welcome. Monochrome is often a fine vehicle for expressing drama, if processed correctly; I think it has something to do with the absolute contrast between highlight and shadow, for me at least.
