Wow- really surprised this one went over well.
I was in the mid-7 range after 26 votes and I was floored.
This was shot in the parking lot at my work.
Yes real shadow.
I exaggerated the shadows and added texture.

Love the composition and the starkness between the black and white. Great shot.

The style of this image/processing is NOT my usual "cup of tea". In other challenges, I might have rolled my eyes and moved on.
However, for THIS topic, something I'd normally dislike a lot, moved me enough to award an 8!!!!!! I still don't like it as a photograph, but I adore it for this challenge. Well done because it fits so well in my opinion.

Now I know--it's possible to be Nihilist & Noir at the same time. Excellent, well done.

Fantastic. Well composed and executed, and I love the processing. A bit of a twist in the mood of the classic 1940's film noir. Perhaps nouveau film noir. Nice entry.

The intense contrast gives the feel of a graphic. Very cool.

I don't think it's a film noir image, but it's a very good one.
It is more contemporary than a 1950s feel but it has it has its "noir" soul.

simple but extremely strong picture. My favorite for a ribbon.
