Photographer's Note

This one is a scanned photograph. The title Fragment is because I removed the lower part and surroundings of the building to eliminate too many "factors of distraction" and to highlight the bell tower.
Here we have the Saint-Pierre Church in Caen, France. The bell tower was built at the beginning of the 14th century and destroyed at the time of the Second World War, then rebuilt identical, with the stone of Caen.
This material is a limestone extracted in the area of Caen, employed since the 11th century and used in the construction industry. There are several important buildings on which this stone was used, not only in Normandy (France), but also in England, especially in London.
A quarry is again in exploitation to allow the construction and the restoration of buildings.

PP with Elements 4: straighten tool, crop, clone tool to erase power line crossing right on the middle of the tower, sharpen tool, noise reduced.

B&W version as WS.

After reading your critiques, I've added another WS: I've enhanced a little more of sharpness, despite increasingly noise. Please, I would appreciate your opinion if it is visually acceptable.
