Canon 300D , EF 50/1.4 USM , f /8.0 , 1.6s , ISO 100 , EC+1 , RAW

My first ThemeThursday entry ever! I’d love feedback. I hope to participate regularly. This week’s theme : noise . I think this photo evokes a noise that hopefully will make the viewer’s skin crawl. Taken in RAW, converted to TIFF with Canon’s FileViewer, and then the background was desaturated to bring out the chalkboard. Curves were altered very slightly. Exposed up one stop because of the dark rug and chalkboard surface.
