vanessa in tirol

I shot vanessa in a small shitty hotel room in Innsbruck late night, sun was missing so i had to use my big octa for soft light
using "high" white balance for a goldy look in combination with some oil on her skin ...

Nice shot

What drew me to this was the pose and the camera angle. I'm certainly not a pixel peeper or anything, but this certainly doesnt seem like a photo shot at 100 ISO. Did you add grain in post? Some of the time it works, I don't know that it adds anything in this photo though. Love the image though!

yes, you are right. grain doesnt add anything to this particular image. back then, it was part of my style, though. again - dont ask me why ;)
nowadays i skip grain and retouch "totally" different.
maybe i will just delete this image.
thx for cc!

I certainly wouldn't delete it. The image certainly stands out!

Are you mad?? Never delete this image. The noise is fine. It's a beautiful image. Period.
