Wow. Just Wow. I especially love the printing technique. It looks like charcoal. I've been wracking my brain because I think there was once a wet process for getting that look but now I can't remember what it was (or even if it really existed).

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Ernst, I took a ton of photos today with a red filter; day was very stormy and overcast and they all had what I thought was noise from an iso of 12500. So I did nothing with them. When I saw this, I wondered whether it was noise or your processing. Thanks. Matt

I enjoy adding noise to an image at times. Brings out the Pictorialism in me. ;-)

Very nice, very artistic rendition with an old-school feel to the editing. And a reminder that noise/grain has long been a part of fine art photography and can sometimes be used as a feature.

I love the image and the texture. I can see this as a series! S-
