I love the title, and this wonderfully exemplifies black on black for me.

Ok Thanks for the comments.
I was really adjusting the darkness lots of times.

But based on some of the comments on the last black on black i choose to go for at pretty dark finish.
I will post some other versions, in the outtakes, to get some comments.
I get the feeling that it could have done pretty well, if I had gone for a brighter version!

The ambiguity of the title is perfect for this image.

a bit too dark to my taste since I had to get closed to the screen to see what it was and I still can guess. This situation, in my humble opinion is sad. When I see a picture I kind of like to know what I am looking at. The subject seems to be on focus though. Just my 2 cents. Thanks for sharing!!

I like this low key abstract - and it meets the challenge well.
