    Since I got the E30, the Grainy B&W has been my favorite filter.

    And I really like the combination of the EP2 and the 20mm. Great for indoors/nighttime and low-light in general.

    Taken at a Coliccho & Sons Restaurant (formerly Craft Steak) in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan.

    Thanks for looking,
    Steve

    Not a big fan of film grain but that works really well. Excellent image!

    Hi Steve,

    thanks for sharing - the B&W Grainy Art Filter is one of my favourites... you chose it well for this scene.

    Cheers

    Thanks Street (again), Andy and Brian.
    I probably have used this filter as much as all the others combined and it's probably because I always liked working in B&W back in my film days (remember film) and this filter works great. (And saves a lot of time in post processing as well!!!)
    I sat comparing this version to the original RAW and the filtered version just added something that the original did not.
    Took three shots - one just the "wine cellar", one just the dining room and this one. And yes the division might be too centered for some tastes (remember "Rule of Thirds"???), I like the way it turned out.
