    I recently joined a school alumini forum and was asked about my new picture. Just did a quick snapshot. With my camera in hand, I hope everyone understand one of my new passions since graduation: taking photos!

    It looks grainy, though. Do I need to re-shoot?

    I rather like the grain, and I like the shot. Nicely done. :)

    Hah, I can't believe this works. Thanks, Mindii, I'll learn to come up with a better one. :)

    Grain is good! Many pro photogs ADD grain to photos that have none, just to give it a "film" feel.
    I like the photo and the tones. The only nit I have is to watch your backgrounds. That coat hang in the viewer left is a little distracting.

    Oh, thanks, I get it. The coat is black, without which I was afraid the picture might not be in balance, then the bright side of the closet looked overwhelming. Anyway, it's a spontaneous shot. Fun to see yourself this way.

    i think you've surpassed grain and gone into compression. there's a little too much, other than that its alright.
