    The grain is so subtle, I had to look at the images on my iPad to see which photo had the grain filter. I THINK I could tell by looking at the wood grain in the wall. Both photos are lovely. They have such good placement. I don't think you could go wrong with either one!

    Thanks! The grain is very subtle. I started to get the grain when I adjusted the levels in Snapseed. To get rid of the grain I used Noise Master. I kind of like it a little grain it gives it the retro fill to it. Just wanted to get some feedback..

    Both are lovely, but I would go with the grain!

    It is probably subtle enough not to worry about Danny... :whistle:

    Although, for my money, I would leave it in as it is integral to the effect imhgo... :thumbs:

    The other thing to remember is the loss of definition when you do try and remove 'grain', however good the process that removes it, it is inevitable... :confused:

    As for the iMage itself, it is a triumph of contra jour sir, a fantastic take that would be hard to do better (with or without grain!)... :D

    What does this mean, are you talking about contrast or something else?

    The image is very powerful. A black and white rendering might look even better.

    Yes, when I adjusted contrast and ambience the grain(small spots) became more apparent. Good idea..on a break I will make a B&W.

    I like the noise/grain effect. Try making a really grainy image and see what it looks like.
    I would also try taking the grainy image into Noir or Dramatic Black & White to make a hardcore black and white image.
    They are stunning as they are too! :thumbs:
