Nice picture. This motive calls for using out obsolete gear, low pix bad ISO. Try next time retake it so that we can see pixels big like golfballs (unfortunately the are square not round ones) and nicely noisy and you might come with Manet-esque impressionistic photo. ;). Maybe old CCD Ricohs would do the job? Catch word? Let`s use our gear shortcomings to our advantage! Stanislaw
p.s. I know, there are lot of filters but it`s not the same.

Good points Stanislaw. I'm using my cheap & nasty phone quite a bit these days and there is no doubt in my mind that subject & composition is far more important than perfect technical capture. As we both know. some of the iconic photos of the past were taken on pretty rough gear.
