Angela, the use of light to contour and model shape is an excellent example of low-key. Voters were looking for something they knew nothing about, because of a BAD challenge description.

Nice lines, outlines, lighting, composition. Interesting and effective.

To me, the background is to dominant. The blinds create a perception of lightness within the composition so it is perceived as being to light even though the model is mostly in shadow. I think this would have been improved with a solid neutral background.

Way too bright to qualify as low-key IMHO. White blinds make low-key hard to do. Maybe wooden blinds?

It's great to know how the eye works and the blind work perfectly.

This is a wonderful entry in this contest. The horizontal light is mesmerizing.

Very creative. Not sure I like the big smile on her face though or the arm cut off. You should do this again but try the composition in landscape. Good luck!

Excellent image here..... Just so perfect with the "low" light streaming through the blinds, and also a wonderful composition.....

Hypnotizing photo with the blinds! Maybe a little not "low key" enough but a good picture!

Great shot .. but low key images use very dark backgrounds to pull focus to light subjects
