Congrats on your ribbon. This was my pick of the challenge. I am a huge mystery fan - movies and novels - so it is easy to see why I liked this. ;-)

Great choice of scenery -- this seems straight out of a movie. I wish the shadow were a bit clearer or more obviously in a recognizable position. Still a solid 7.

I really like this. Good job. Bumping it up.

I like this because of the dark tones to match the darkness and mystery of the shot. I really get a sense of forboding danger and mystery. I think you were creative with what you did here.

Impressive shot.

overall, very good aesthetics. It has that "fleeting shadow in the alley film" feeling to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the scene and the color. Question though: Wouldn't the shadow be bent at a pronounced right angle at the knees, or crotch, on the wall? The other dark area infront of the figure steals some of the show from a very neat scene.

Wow - beautiful shot. Very artistic - one of my favorites so far. The detail is fabulous, as is the mood you've created. I love the way the shadow pulls your eye across the image from left to right, right down the the light at the end of the street, which is exposed just enough to be bright but not overpowering. 10

Lighting is very good. It really helps to show off the textures on the floor and the wall. You can almost feel the roughness of the wall. The shadow definitely makes you want to know the story.

Feels like it could work as a movie poster. Has an Alfred Hitchcock feeling and mood. "9"

You've created a great mood of menace and mystery.
