photoblog image M1

Tried an unusual crop on this image - and added plenty of grain - I liked the effect.
Be interesting to find out if the crop works for you all?

Works perfectly fine for me, a trick to try when applying grain is to veiw the image at 100%, when you do print this out, let me know how it comes out.

Wirld: Hey Suby,
Thanks for the comment - re printing: I've had 2 results - a 'high street' type lab messed it up for me...and a specialist lab turned out a pritn that worked extremely well - sort of looked Ilford FP4, but with a touch more contrast

Howzit Grany you old Devil!! Just got time for a quick comment before leaving to go to Pta. Love the crop,but the grain seems a little too much - did you leave the sharpening switched on for upload? Cheers for now, regards, Neil.
Wirld: Hey Neil,
Been a long time - thanks for the comment...
Sharpening for upload: Uh, uh...

Long time no see, and now something to see smile

I guess what is a bit visible are some of the border lines of her body - either dark lines or light lines which can be due to contrasting? Anyhow the grain doesn't look too bad - I think. Some will say it ruins her skin.

Works for me anyhow.
Wirld: Hey Louis,
Yeah, quite right...not really noticeable on the print...must be extra sharpening - maybe Neil was right...
G'lord - imagine that! smile

who gave you permission to take time out Grant? lol

I think that it is quite a classic crop really, it has an almost advertising bill board feel for say a perfume or such! lovely image. mal
Wirld: Lol...time out 's only way I know...
Long time no speak - thanks for the kind comment!
