B&W Film Grain

Challenge #9 in the Pari's Series series. Hosted by Parinita Salian.
Challenge has finished
Nothing can beat the effect of film grain on a Black and White image. It coverts the photograph into a timeless piece of art. Film had a distinct advantage over digital when it came to grain, as digital noise didnt give the same effect. But with advanced image-editing softwares and plug-ins its possible to replicate the effect.

How do I escape the city as a New Yorker? Central Park is the answer. The awesome pound located at 110th Street in Central Park is one of the most rewarding and relaxing places you will find as a local, tourist, and why not.. a photographer. It was a beautiful day and this image was my reward. Using Nik Silver Efex pro to convert to B&W and film grain
