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.

Photo taken during a meeting of a local photoclub. A beautiful sunset rays coming through the attic window illuminated heads of these three colleague phototographers so I raised the camera and took this photo.
