Dhruva, B&W photography can often be enhanced by careful management of tones. Here we don't have colors to play with, all we have is shades of grey from pure black to pure white. Most often we need to carefully manage these tonal ranges from pure black to pure white. We need to first make an evaluation about how to render which part of the frame with what tone. Managing pure blacks and pure white is easy but the enhanced beauty is often in managing the tonal spread between them carefully. Ansel Adam mastered this very well. Here in this image tonal spread can be vastly improved. This comment applies to your other posted B&W images too. Please have a look at how Raj processes his mages like this one (click one the thumb nail below):

Examine carefully how he managed medium tones in the image. That adds too much to B&W rendering. I hope this helps!!
