This photograph has a different texture I find difficult to describe. It is more noticeable in the blurred background, especially in the green tones. It is not quite the same but it reminds me of the feeling I normally get through my film photographs.
The reason for such a feeling is clear to me, is the rusticity aspect of it. We get such feelings most from colors and shape texture which is normally obtained through the silver salt grain in film photographs. This photograph is digitally made though, but a certain texture on the colors was obtained that gives some similar feeling of rusticity.
The rustic feeling is a feeling of tangibility, as if what we are looking at was handmade, like film negatives and silver salt grains that are tangible. This photo is not but it has the feeling to me.
I think the color temperature also helps with such feelings, the dark warm color of green, orange and pink. Also the contrast with the deep blacks. Such rustic feelings have the power to make us feel welcomed like at home, the place where we have the most intimate contact with objects.
