Challenge has finished
Enter a photo that has a film noir 'look' to it. Noir is stark contrasts, dramatic shadow patterning, side or from-below lit subjects, perhaps dark dirty alleys, gloomy rain, venitian blinds and other straight lines & shadows emphasized. If you like movies of the 40's and 50's you're probably familiar with the style. Although traditionally b&w, moody noir-images can also be shot in color, especially by emphazing blue tones and high contrast images with dark shadows. You can even set up a Hollywood noir-type scene if want. Streetlamps in the fog, or men in Fedoras. As long as it looks like noir. Have fun! For samples and ideas, you can google 'film noir style photography'.
