Very dramatic. I love the detail & structure on the left 2/3rds, but I'm not so sure about the square tower and the tree on the right. Is this a product of the B&W conversion?

Hi Phil, no it's the type of masonry on the keep, which is very different to that on the curtain walls. The keep has smooth coursed stone, whilst the curtain walls are rough stone and this makes it reflect the light differently.
