I had looked down my hall many time at night and thought that the light was pretty cool coming down the hall.Since submitting this image I have learnt a little on the PS raw and tinkered with this pic again and improved it a heap so I'm kicking my self now!!

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This would have got a 6-7 from me in voting. It's a very strong shot, showing just enough to get the point across without being overdone. I do side with those that suggest clearing up the counters in the future, it's too easy to forget about clutter in the bg! It's often tiny things like that, esp in a challenge about isolation, that hold voters back from giving a stronger vote. You may have been able to clone some items out, but imho it's best to get the shot in-camera than rely on pp later.

The backlighting is great, I like the POV and the use of the floor tiles to lead to the desolate figure. You could have gone for an even longer exposure as you were using a tripod and remote or timer to get the shot. B/W might have also worked well and added to the sense of desolation.

And you finished just below a 6, which is very respectable, so don't be too hard on yourself! If you can, mess around with the setup a little more and reshoot. Try opening the door a little more, play with your position, etc and see what shakes out :-)

Feel free to PM me,

Good portrayal of being left. I like how the light is shining through, the darkness of the model and foreground work great. The only thing that throws me off is that slight red tint in the background... a cup perhaps? Other than that, it's nicely done.
