    This is the portrait of a steam traction engine driver. As soon as I saw him on his engine I was fascinated. He looked fatigued, and alone. He was covered in soot. The original is grainy, I had the ISO set at 1600 as I had just been photographing some moving engine parts, yet I think it helps this image.

  2. He does have an intense look and could probably use a cold drink. I like the grain and the whole look of the image. I bet he would like a print.
  3. I like this image a lot. I think the grain really adds to it and gives it a timeless feel...it could have been taken today or 50 years ago! Nice capture!
  4. It's not grain, it's noise... noise is bad, noise is terrible, noise means your camera is crap.

    EVERYTHING has a place in art!

    Even "noise"
