When taking this shot of one of the most iconic sights in Barcelona I fell foul of the old ISO1600 trap - must have forgotten to reset it after some dark shots the previous night. Still, after applying my old favourite - the fake 'Lomo' look - the previously unwelcome grain doesn't really matter!

There's those that don't understand why I would want to take a shot on my extremely expensive digital SLR and then use Photoshop to make it look like I took it on a plastic toy camera, but for me the fun and satisfaction in my photography can come from some creative and expressive processing as much as from taking a technically and aesthetically pleasing shot.
