  • coming to get you

    I don't know how this will look on all of the monitors out there but it is fine here



    I had to shoot under less than wonderful conditions so tried a number of things to live with the noise. If you have seen the 'arty' grainy, pastel flowers on limited edition prints and cards - then you might see this as a tongue in cheek response from nature.

    Hi Peter

    An interesting way of taking advantage of noise. I guess its a case that if you cannot deal with something that is wrong then make it a feature. I think it works. The pale pastel colours and the black insect probably look better with this treatment than had you managed to remove all noise. To do so would have lost you any detail at all.

    Cheers

    Peter
    Best Regards

      I agree with Peter - I like it!

      I think the grain enhances the image.

        I agree, it works very well

          Hmmmm, not so sure on this one.

          I love grainy pictures, but prefer black and white to colour if grain is involved.

          I do like the composition though.

            In general I agree with that (although I always had a soft spot for ISO 3200 colour print film - don't recall the brand, but grain like golf balls!), but I think with the muted pastel tones it works. I think it has almost a handtinted B&W look.

              Thank you everyone for those kind comments.

              I did try every variation of colour and mono. I found that black and white was OK but had less impact and the bug did not look as creepy or stand out quickly enough.

              Although I have come from a film background I never tried the high ISO film I was always avoiding grain.

                I quite like this, it's the sort of effect that would work well on a greeting card.

                  Thank you. I think I'll try others and see if I can get a similar look.
