I took several pictures the night before, and went back to reshoot. I forgot to charge the big high-beam flashlight. It died before I started. This is with the on camera flash, but turned out better than I would have guessed. I felt a little self-conscious about having my son's realistic pellet pistol. Fortunately, no one saw me.

Interesting pov. I like the grittiness, but find it oversharpened. Also, not sure about the harsh shadows on his face, although I understand what you were going for.

I like everything about the image except for the editing, too much fill-light?8

What a cool location. The hand in front of the face and shadows are perfect. Well done.

The graininess works really well! Great point of view, it's very much a film noir style image.

Good attempt. I like it for the challenge theme. However, I think you would have achieved a more noir mood if the light was tighter on the subject. He's holding up his hand like he is being spotlighted/blinded. So if you were able to concentrate the light on his upper torso, and left the surrounding area darker, this would have been a stronger image.

Looks good, but for me it's lacking some tension. It could use some shadow play. For example, a bright flashlight shining down on the guy or a large silhouette of the guy he's being chased by might have given the image more of an edge, IMO.
