    A different take on "Lines". :D

    The slight graininess was unintentional --that'll teach me not to check my ISO settings... But I'm getting the hang of manipulating white balance. Hence no post-processing. :)

    Actually, I think the grain adds to the overall feel of the image. At first glance, I thought it was added intentionally. The colors appear muted, yet saturated, and complement each other quite nicely. Finally, the composition works very well, and I definitely get the sense that the telephone lines are meant to be the subject.

    I like the end result.

    Great stuff, i'm just starting to try to work more with the WB setting too.
    I also agree with supermonkey, I like the grain, it works! :)

    What camera etc are you using?

    Nikon D80 with 18-70 mm kit lens and polarising filter, White Balance set to compensate for shade. This boosts the warmth of the light source, in this case the late afternoon sun nicely.

    Here's another picture I took at the same location with the same settings:
