    What do you think about this crop I made with one of my latest portrait shoots?
    do you think the grain works well?

    I don't remember the specs... but I did use Ilford film. (added grain in PS)
    Thanks!

    I like the crop, all you get to see is that someone with a guitar is going someplace on some tracks. Its very universal. However, I think it would work better with a tad less grain. The grain is good, I just would also like to see one with a little less.

    i agree with darin, but i wonder how it would look if you pulled back just a bit to include more track.

    I like the shot. I am compelled to create my own story and I love that. The crop is a good approach. The problem is that the shot would have been better suited to a wide angle lens and cropped in the camera. I think a more natural grain would have looked better here. The current version looks more like noise.

    I think you are having the same problem with grain that I had. Looks like there is a bit of color there. You have to desaturate again after the grain.

    I agree with JM that just a tad bit more of the photo would be nice. BTW I saw this in your senior pix series and really loved this one especially. Nice shot.

    Thanks everyone!
    I was rushing last night and I did it in about 30 seconds...
    But I had it in my mind and had to get it out there before I lost it. haha

    I'll try everything y'all suggested in a bit.

    Thanks again,
    Chris
