@Sonia Nansid: Thanks Sonia....I added the grain in post processing as I thought the original photo looked a bit too clinical and clean.

Ian Smith from London, United Kingdom

Agree with Sonia - the grain is a nice addition.

The grain is a great addition, adds to the atmosphere. This looks almost as good as Rooney's goal on Saturday.

Very cool. I love the grain. It's sorta backlit, like the structure may be important to some people. heh.
