I was glad no one got suspicious of me running back and forth down a dark alley with a baseball bat hitting the self timer on the camera. I chose a wealthy suburban alley to do this rather than one in downtown Chicago where I might have gotten mugged and my camera stolen.

I am very happy with a top ten finish. Thanks for the comments.

Just about every challenge I am seeing a top 10 out of you, I'm having a hard time keeping up with the comments! :)

Nope. Too dark and too light. The pose does not come across as threatening - the "assailant's" right hand looks like it is in his pocked, and (maybe just my monitor), it is too dark to see anything threatening in his left hand. Also, the tilt of his head is more inquiring than threatening.
The pattern in the floor, and texture of the bricks in the floor and the walls is very nice.

Excellent. This really does convey a sense of foreboding and danger! So far, this is my favourite of the challenge. Great shot!!

This image makes a statement. I really like how it's a small setup- in the sense that the walls are close together making it a tight image. I hope that made sense because I don't know how else to explain it.

Spot on execution with no observable processing artifacts in spite of impossibly difficult lighting. Strong image and my pick to take blue.

I think I would have cropped some from the top and the left to off-set the subject and emphasize the leading lines. I love the texture on the walls and the ground, and I love the way the light shines off them.

Funny, the half on the left seems to be facing away, and the other half towards us. Scary.

Effective, I like it

is he/she holding something in their right hand?

texture is good, as is the lighting. I think the shadow being cropped is hurting you a little bit, as is not being able to tell what the person is doing. The pose is menacing, but there's not enough information visible to see what those intentions are.

One of the only a few that actually meet the challenge of fun, scary or sexy.
