    This is a shot I did for the lead singer of a local band. She wanted it to look like it was shot on old film, she wanted lots of grain in the shot.

    In general I think you have captured what she is looking for. However, you have added lots of noise via too much contrast editing and not enough grain. There is a difference and I think you might be missing it on this one. Add more grain, get rid of the noise.

    I like the gritty look and the composition, but she looks like she's 12.

    I recommend cloning the calvin klein logos out, if she uses it on a album jacket or anything there could be some future issues.
    Over all I think its a good idea, execution is a little harsh but a good start. A few things to make it better...
    I see more banding and digital noise than grain, and I get a Avril knock off about this whole photo. Also, crop it closer or farther her hand is cut off at the wrist and it is very distracting. The last major issue I have is her left eye is too dark and looks bruised, try more fill.

    Is she meant to be advertising CK underwear? I would suggest photoshoping the logos out.

    Edit: Nein-reis has already said that >.<

    Not so creative. Do you have other shots from this session? Again noise does not equal grain.
