May I ask what the inspiration for the cross was (if that is what it is)? I love the emotion in this shot, and the grain with the color. Beauitful.

There's a lot of uncommon elements in this one, it's a very thought-provoking piece, given the title.

Great title btw.

I see a mosaic of shyer emotions and a sense of a past, a history, and a question.

I like that it puzzles me, and is still very much draws on the eyes.

It's great. I think the b/w makes it more dramatic... I think the photo would be better if the top of the head could appear, but I love it anyway :)

For grain, I think you can use "Noise" --> "Add noise" filter. Just make sure you checked the "Monochromatic" Option.
Hope it can be of some use for you. :)

What version do you use?

If you use Adobe Photoshop CS, this is what I would do to reproduce the grain effect.

On an opened file, create a duplicate of your background layer, go into
Filter>Noise>Add Noise

A diologue box should pop up. Make sure you select the box at the bottom that says Monochromatic. Fiddle with your options above. I, personally, like to keep the amount under 10%, but it depends entirely on how much grain you want. I also prefer the Gaussian option over the Uniform option, just because it adds more interst to your noise pattern.

Click OK

In your layers palette, select the background copy layer, and set your blend mode to Overlay. Fiddle with your Opacity and Fill options (at the top of the palette, to the direct right of your blend mode drop down menu) until it looks right to you.

Alternitivly, you can select Soft Light or Hard Light, depending on the initial intesnity of the grain you want. You can also fiddle with your Opacity and Fill options when using this blend mode, but generally, it looks pretty good as-is without much adjustment.

I hope that helped a bit :) I really love her expression as well, it really helps set the mood.

Beautiful piece as always :clap:

About the grain with Photoshop: maybe you could try adding 'Noise' on selected areas (I think it's Filters > Noise, or within one of the 'Filters' options). Or you would need to find or create an appropriate pattern (maybe by scanning or shooting something grainy), then select the areas you want to make grainy and make a new pattern layer on them, set it to 'Multiply' and lower its opacity.
Obviously, these would probably not reproduce exactly the grain of the traditionnal photograph, but it might be worth a try. :)

black and white always gives photos an extra dramatic sutil taste...

i love the expression of the hand that is on her face contrasting with the hand that is extended like if she was asking, it's very intense, are you the model? it's an excelent representation, it doesnt look over acted at all.
anyway is a great shot.

:)

Beautiful photo.
though you are right about the grain. but it sirt if gives it a dirty look, which is good.
your title is perfect. firs very well.
though i wish the tip of her head wasnt cut off. and that black curtain thing on the left sticks out kind of badly.
but i still like this a lot.
nice work :)
