Rejected by DC Prints with reason "Too grainy." THE GRAIN IS INTENTIONAL! Sheesh! Looks fine off my printer. Do they need to purchase new ones? <sigh>

Single candle provides lighting. Long exposure to obtain natural camera grain. Dust & Scratches filter to remove high contrast digital noise.

Negative space added above original shot to give gazing eyes something to gaze into and provide a better balance. Some cloning, so I can't submit to the B&W Basic Editing challenge. May find some black sheets and try again before the deadline.

Something is lost in the camera angle. Perhaps it should be a little higher?

Model's name is Lea.

I think the grain looks good. I think it is a lost technique on todays photography.
