    Shots like these make me wonder why so many people get hung up on "noise" as a negative. If used properly as you have it adds immeasurably to the image. Good stuff Frits!

    Very nice Frits, especially the second one.

    Great job on the conversion.

  5. Frits............ excellent work here!

    Very moody and great comp............ like Eric, I too love the film look here.

    I'm currently watching a 35mm Ai-s f/1.4 on fleabay........ this image might just push my limited budget over the edge! :eek:

  6. Thanks Graeme!
    2 words on the Ai-S 35mm f/1.4: GET IT!
    It will suit your shooting style very well, you'll love it!
    Here is the original with it. The green reflection from an opposite wall prompted me to convert to B&W, then I just played some to get an effect I like...

  7. Well............ got to up my bid after seeing the original image and the detail........ I love these manual lenses!

    Ah....so self-induced grain.....not noise at all.
  9. Frits, cool shots. I do like the grainy black and whites.
  10. Great shot and conversion, Frits. Not a fan of the grainy look, but these shots are really nice.......it really is a totally different effect.

  11. Frits, what intense concentration Ian has. He looks like a very serious young man.

    I hope you don't mind. I took a stab a replacing the background and this is what I came up with.

    Really look like old film shots, very nice! I'd only wish the guitar was more visible :) (I'm a guitar player myself ;) )
  14. Frits, fabulous!!
