OK, I get it!! I won't take a perfectly sharp picture and make it look vintage unless it is in such a category. Man did I get hammered...
This was actually a pretty nice picture until I wrecked it in topaz. I suppose my ISO was a little high, but I wanted to take a grainy picture since I missed the "Grain" challenge...
Oh well, live and learn...

Grain is not as beloved as it should be.

Personally the funny face is good but not the processing.

ok I understand what you were going for but the shot is too grainy and to bright. The lighting is way too harsh for the image

Definetely funny, I like the vintage post-processing.

A cute idea for a pic of a clearly fun-spirited child but the processing kills it for me (assuming it's processing, might just be a low quality photograph.) Far, far too noisy, lacks any kind of punch.

Not fond of the grain. I think it takes away from the impact.
