    I think the photo is adorable but...grainy. I'm not sure I understand the point of the edit.

    I was just trying to go for the 'old' look while not using the same old things that you usually see.

    So, would you say the above to this person's face if you just walked by and noticed them contemplating a photo and you had never seen or talked to this person before in your life? I doubt it. So why would you here? Your comment is rude and doesn;t add any value to anything. Period.

    [now if you knew this person and said that face to face with a smile, nudge nudge wink wink etc....... no problems... But I read this as a disrespectful dig and uncalled for.]

    Yeah thanks for the rudeness, don't worry- Karma buddy ;)

    I thought perhaps it would be seen as clever, to be working with what I have, but I guess you are the type of person to throw out potential rather than work with it.

    Dont lose heart Essence. There are tools you can use to clean up the noise in this image if you feel its necessary. You might want to give Neat Image a try, or Noise Ninja. The Reduce Noise filter in PS works quite well too. Now, whether this image is in focus or not is a different story. I cant really tell.

    Actually, I find that the noise in this image gives it a bit of character. I have seen many photos on this forum that are grainy on purpose, and it has worked quite well in certain cases.

    However, if you are the photog and you can control the lighting, then I would say do whatever is necessary to get decent lighting. ;)

    Don't listen to the "bashers". I personally like the noise in this picture....alot. The edit is kind of tacky in my opinion since any trained eye can see that it is a mere 10 second tool in PS. The first one works great for me......no need for an edit.

    Critiques could be disrespectful? I'm not the type to waste time on "I didn't mean to hurt your feelings but...". I would hate it if anybody waste time on useless comments like that on my work. Get to the point.

    I don't like the spirit of the work, and my comment expressed just that. Go back and correct the bad lighting and noise by retaking the photo.

    It only takes a filter, texturizer. So much for your trained eye.
