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.

The harbour light

410th place (joint)
The Kalk Bay harbour wall can be a rough place in a storm. Tonight was calm, with the harbour light flickering in the mid-distance. The ghostly fishing boats evoking memories of the past, when they were full of busy fishermen. I woke, and we were sailing on As in a gentle weather : 'Twas night, calm night, the moon was high ; The dead men stood together. (Samual Taylor Coleridge - Rime of the Ancient Mariner)
