There is no winner in this. It is just for fun. You can add to it anytime or start another contest.

OK. Don't think I like enuf filter effects to
do this every week, but I tend to find the
film grain filter to be "image friendly", so
here's some grain [before and after]:

I shoulda mentioned there was also use of
another filter, the sharpening filter called
Unsharp Mask. Thaz 2 filters in one image
so I spoze I'm covered for 2 weeks ?

BTW, I've always loved grain. I've usually
worked in difficult situations with high
speed grainy films. Often there is a very
narrow plane of sharp focus and often a
slow shutter speed takes the edge off of
what manages to be in focus. Grain gives
the viewer's eyes a place to focus on so
that minor loss of real image sharpness is
less noticeable. Some contrast boost can
also help by producing sharp edge effect
at strong tonal transitions regardless of a
lack of actual focus at those transitions.

I'm finding it difficult to really love the
digital image the way I loved the image
I got with film for 50 yrs, but I'm really
glad to no longer need to combine total
darkness, plumbing, electricity, and a
dust-free environment with perishable
chemicals and paper. This freedom is
enuf to make me wanna learn to work
out my "issues" with digital imaging.
