how do get strong b/w
I m very curious how some photographers shoot strong b/w like these?
is there any special post processing techniques, apparently my b/w always seems grey and lack the depth.. i notice i m only able to get pure b/w when i was using film before i upgrade to digital

Have you considered colour filters??

what type of filters.. i tried correcting the channels with photoshop but still doesnt look good..should i shoot b/w in raw?

hrmmm.... You know... Coloured filters like Red, yellow, orange filters?
Alternatively, what you can do is to shoot in colour, then use photoshop's channel mixer to convert to greyscale...

One thing I realised about the link kuxion gave...
The church spire looks a bit fake. I'm not much of an expert, but I feel the contrast is too high. It looks like the spire was just layered on top of the sky. The contrast is not consistent between the spire and the sky itself.
