My own spin off of the scene from the movie The Shining, when the twin girls are standing at the end of the hallway and the little boy rides around the corner on his Big Wheel.

Picture was shot at my place of work after lights out and only the emergency lighting was on. Due to the low lighting I used a tripod and a shutter release cable to capture the image.

Post Processing:

1)Image was rotated .5% clockwise
2)Cropped to 8x10
3)Adjusted LEVELS (Right Slider) to 185
4)Adjusted Contrast +25%
5)Add 5% Noise to the image
6)Added LIGHTING EFFECT (Omni, Intensity +25% and Ambiance +5%) to the center of image

7)Adjusted image size to comply with DPC Rules and saved image as DSCF0026C.

This is wonderful. As with the other commenter I immediately thought of The Shining from the thumbnail.

Wonderful and eerie. Those two EXIT signs complement the two chairs perfectly. Nice Shining reference as well! My pick for the Blue. 10.
