On our way southbound to the lake of Geneva we stopped for a walk at this famous cheese town in the Kanton of fribourg.
It is a beautifully fortified town situated on top of a fairly big hill.
I borrowed my girlfriends canon ixus 850 IS which actually take pretty good photos.
Decided on yet another B+W conversion with some use of the clarify filter and removed digital noise afterwards.

it seems go out from a medioeval tale!
Technically it's perfect: you successfully removed every noise and you obtained a great sharpness.
Very well done

Great contrast in this b&w shot, a little bit noisy sky, but it adds more drama!

Nice picture of Gruyères. It looks like an old painting. Good choice of teh BW.
Kind regards - Franco

This B&W with the clarify filter gives a look of an etching, even from the thumbnail. Your low POV and diagonal composition of the buildings works very well in the composition.

Impresionante foto con una atmósfera extraña, misteriosa y una arquitectura preciosa, muy bonita tu serie de fotos en B/N.

The B&W PP works very well with that kind of place/architecture. Makes it looking like a compo from old centuries. Interesting and troubling effect.
Well done then...
