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.

66th place
I was out shooting some Candids and this kid comes up saying, "My turn" so I snapped a shot of him (it was way too posed) and waited for him to drop his guard and start acting like a kid when he started tugging on his Shirt I quickly popped off the shot.
