Easy shot. Jenn is lit by the laptop monitor. I am wrapped up in a black sheet with another black sheet on the wall as a background.

Post production: up the contrast, emphasize the blueish tint to the monitor light, slight levels tweak, USM.

Love your imagination (in general), and the dramatic shadows in this one along with the desat look gives it the full film noir feeling.

The lighting is wonderful and her expression here is very well captured.
In fact I can see this, a split-second later, followed by her screaming. (if it wasn't staged)
Top 5 in this challenge for sure.

The idea is cool, but I don't like the strong shadow below her eyes, maybe could have been avoidd wth alittle different lighting

The look on her face truely captures the feeling here. The hand comming from the great darkness is perfect. The purity of her clothing.... it all works together with the lighting... marvelous depiction of fear!

Although it's not of a specific phobia, the picture is great and the girls expression is good.
