The best images to me are the ones where the grain disappears, not in the print itself, but in your mind. In other words, the composition and other aspects of the images are so strong that you don't even see the grain. Some perhaps can't get past the grain to see what else is there.
Yes. I personally don't really care about the grain. It's what's beyond the grain that matters.
