John, the graininess of the image, I believe adds to the feel of the uncomfortable feeling when one's feelings aren't grounded. There are so many emotions at play, so many double-edged, fractured feelings. I think it is great. I think I would like to see a bit of the levels adjustment to bring out the mid-tones just a hair--I think that would add to the contrast inherent in our emotions from millisecond to millisecond when we are in conflict. She is a beautiful girl, and you tell a very real story.
Hello again Jane, thanks for your thoughtful comments, you are so right!
I usually don’t do any exaggerated post processing, but on the other hand, I usually don’t try to photograph fragile feelings either!
