Grainy Black and White

AFTER:

I found this beautiful pic on Unsplash.com. I instantly knew I wanted to make it look a bit older...like way older. 

When I created my action, I used a combination of gamma correction, exposure changes, manipulating the curves and levels, and I added a subtle noise filter to give it a grainy look. I really wanted the blacks in the picture to be pure black but also so some depth and subtle textures. This was tricky. I also wanted the natural color changes and the landscape behind the bridge to not lose its character. Overall, I'm really in love with this and might even get and engineer print of this and put it up in my room.
