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.

The film-grain effect transformed this photo and made it look like a beautiful painting. I'm very happy with it.

Focal length: 50 mm
Shutter speed: 1/4000 sec
Aperture: F2
ISO: 100
Notes: Taken during a very dusty weather. Used Silver Effex Pro to apply a soft infra-red filter which turned the dusty weather into a fog-like effect and added the film grain. I tampered with the contrast and brightness a bit, then removed some distracting objects from the photo using the clone tool.
