...lower 4s, at the most. Taken with my LB wide open. A completely impromptu shot. I love the crunchy grain contrasted with the soft blur.

Woohoooo! A PBR!

After:

Thanks Don!

...and it's added grain, for those who commented about the "noise". There's no right or wrong...just choices.

This is of course a Posthumous Blue Ribbon. It is the most original vision I've seen through your eyes.

Very cool with the grain. Love it.

The grain is effective but a more effective treatment would have been to crop the bottom as the image is too tall. The artistic impression is good, but it might have been a good idea to change from black and white to sepia or a more neutral tone. A good entry into the challenge and originally rated a 6, it has been rerated a 7 on review.

It is probably the effect you were after, the old school type, but I am not a fan of the processing, and the noise that it creates, the lack of contrast and definition in the subject as it gets lost amoung the background.

Wonderful!!! Love the position you caught mid-jump, love the B&W, love the grain. My kind of shot.

Your ISO is set too high for this picture if this was not done on purpose. It is very grainy.

Too much out of focus to my liking.

A bit too much noise for me

Looks like Sophia is about to go SPLAT! But cats seem to be able to recoveri n mid-air more often than not. Not sure what I think about all the noise; I suspect I'd like it better if there weren't parts of the chair in rather sharp focus. Kind of surreal and intriguing that the cat's not casting a shadow.
