Challenge: Image Grain (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Nikon D70
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8
Location: Joel & Missy's Backyard
Date: Oct 19, 2005
Aperture: f/2.2
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/800
Galleries: Emotive, Wedding
Date Uploaded: Oct 20, 2005

Re-enactment of a shot I did at a wedding a couple weeks ago. I liked it, so I got JoelHSmith and his wife Missy to be my "couple" over lunch today. I thank them for being such good sports.

Ran my Lomo action to bump up saturation and contrast, converted to B&W and then added sepia/bronze tone, cropped, add some grain, pushed the contrast some more, resize.

*Note* Actually shot with D100 and Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens, but don't want to add it to my profile, for just this photo.

Greetings from the Critique Club

You have an image that perfectly meets the challenge and that employs a classic compositional theme. The subjects' hands are sweetly posed. I very much like the background with its out of focus element of mystery.

There is little left for me to critique.

Wish you had placed higher, but your score is certainly an acceptable one and you certainly can be pleased with your image.

Keep up the good work.

This is awesome. I think I would have liked a much closer crop, with just the hands in the photo -- but that may be just my personal style. But I still love the photo. It's very strong!

Nice shot - a shame the gent's ring slipped down a little.

One of the better photos I've seen in the challenge thus far. Wedding/commitment sort of pictures always look great with grain.

BEAUTIFUL photo! Very artful and emotive, and the grain really works here...just a lovely shot. The lighting looks amazing.

I really like the DOF and composition of this image...It's different with a twist of fun and whimsy...very nice.
