I took these in the country about 1 hour and a half outside the City of Rio de Janeiro but still inside the state of Rio de Janeiro.
I thought I´d mess around with grain for a change.
All NEx-5N with a 35mm 1.7 and the zoom kit.

Just for comparison I´ve posted the last picture in color to see which one you guys prefer.

Very beautiful set RAWFA, I really like the composition and tones, and the grain certainly gives the image a very unique look. I actually prefer a bit of grain or noise in my photos.

I really like pic 4 in B&W... the grain, the composition, and the subject seem to work so well together. It reminds me of a photo Robert Capa may have taken (I mean that as a compliment).

With regards to the mother and child, I prefer the colour version (pic 6). I don't know why, but in the B&W version (pic 5) my eye is drawn to the bokeh patterns. Whereas in the colour version, my attention is immediately drawn to the mother's eyes and then the child's. Their gaze at a mysterious subject behind and beyond the photographer has a powerful effect, which to me is somewhat diminished in the B&W version.

Lovin the grain!

You have captured some wonderful moments in time, the kind that the boy in the photograph will look back on fondly.
