Artemis Running Detail #2

A detail of one of my favorite statues at the St. Louis Art Museum, "Artimis Running."  I've been revisiting some of my earlier work, processing selected pictures with Nik Silver Efex Pro during the evaluation period.  I'm very happy with the results so far, and I like the way the film grain gives some extra flavor to certain surfaces.  Who would have thought Mr. ISO 25 would go looking for film grain?
Technical: Nikon D100, AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8D, ISO 800, f1.8 @ 1/80s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5 to correct color and crop.  Nik Silver Efex Pro provided the albumin print tone and simulate spectral response and grain of Ilford Pan F 50, which was my official replacement film for several years after Kodak stopped making Panatomic X 32.

Such an artist!!! Taking a majority pictures of other people's creations is fairly fraudulent and boring too
