    Awesome shot. I would raise the light gray levels ever so slightly towards white to lighten it up with some contrast.

    Great candid, and props for using the old film camera.

    I like the grain from the 400 speed film.

    Did you develop this yourself or send it out?

    I'm loving this! The only things I would say is, heighten the contrast a bit and maybe next time don't crop so close to his head - I'd leave a tiny bit more space there.

    It seems a very natural photograph, if that's the way i can describe it, my eyes fall onto him very easily and it's a great little capture of a moment. the grain of 400 is well suited to the photo. lovely construction!

    My only Criticism (and of course this is only my opinion) is that, To my eyes at least - the focus is atrocious. I might not be appreciating that this may be exactly how you wanted the picture, so I apologise If i have totally missed the point lol.

    Nice picture though :) please don't think i hate it!
