Neat shot...good choice in B&W
thats a neat shot, there seems to be alot fo grain or noise here, is that what you were after?
I did indeed want a level of grain. I wanted the shot to look more like it was taken with an old film camera.
Very nice effort there (on the film grain). i was going to ask what the speed of the film was, but i guess it was digital. I'd like to see the a 'modern' version of this as well, ie. w/o artificial grain. If its nice and sharp it would be a keeper.
How did I get that film grain look? This shot was underexposed when originally shot. I didn't mean for it to be underexposed and I don't know why it was underexposed, but it was. Anyway, when I lightened the image using levels, I notice there was a lot of noise. Conversion to black and white yielded the film like image.
this photo is great, good choice on the grain, i love film grain, although artificial, still works great.
Theres also a grain filter in photoshop you can use. or the add noise filter...
The image almost looks ancient. Pretty cool subject and scene.
