Thoughts on cropping?

I’ve taken to adding grain to most of my images, the exception being any high ISO images shot on my M9M because it’s natural grain is so beautiful.

'Natural grain' from a digital sensor - that's an emerging term I will have to get used to.

Well, it’s really digital noise, not grain. Noise is a product of slightly different read outs of each pixel when compared to its neighboring pixels while grain is actually a physical component of a frame of film.  Now, all that said it can look functionally identical under some circumstances. 

Because the Monochrom cameras do not employ democaising to interpolate luminance and color between neighboring pixels, they do not demonstrate chroma noise at all nor do they demonstrate the feathering that is so common in color sensors. This leaves only the random luminance fluctuations that is manifested as digital noise and, in the case of the Monochrom cameras, looks like random grain. 

At least, that’s how I’ve understood this for years.
