Before last Friday, when I decided it was about time that I made some changes to how and what I shoot, I suspect that if I'd stumbled across this image I would have hated it. And I can't say that I'm totally convinced that it works now, but it's definitely different.

There are two things I particularly like about it though, one is referenced by the title, and the other is the grain/noise – which in this instance is the result of a fairly major crop to the original, a drastic increase in contrast, and then a doubling of image size prior to reducing it again for presentation here.

Anyway, as this is about as far away from my usual stuff as I've got in recent times I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
