Challenge: film noir

A thread for questions and comments about this challenge.

I have to admit, I'm pretty excited about this one. I love the look of noir, and I think this could be a fun challenge. Hopefully I'm not the only one who does! You could take a photo that has the classic look, or even recreate a scene from one of the movies, I think there's a wide scope for creativity. Hopefully there will be some color entries too, while more difficult to get the look 'right', there have been movies and TV shows in recent times that have used a lot of noir style effects. You can have people in your photos or not, depends on you. Keep it clean though, guys!
