Please give me your opinion on this photo. The noise in the photo is on purpose. I wanted to simulate a film look. Thanks for your comments and tips!! Andrew

To my, absolutely untrained eye, I find it to be a little dark with no reason to be so. Cool boardwalk though.

Potentially a good subject. I too think it's too dark, and I'm not sure that I like the grain simulation, B/W film doesn't have to look grainy to be good. Pay attention to the contrast, but an expansion of the tonal range might be good. In my opinion you should try to expand the tonal range and I think it might look better if you reduced the grain simulation. I think you have a potentially good image here, but I think it might need a few alterations.

Revision

I have taken both of your advice. I have raised the exposure a touch. I agree it may have been a bit underexposed. But i do like the film grain look. I have reduced that a slight bit to compare. I think I may have had it a little to intense before. What do you think of this new version of the photo?

I think that's an improvement. I like a full tonal scale on b/w. I think that it's important to retain black blacks and white whites and a full tonal scale in between. It's not easy to obtain, but when you get there it's worth the trouble.

I think there is a world of difference between the two... and the second gets my vote.
