Hi Irakly,

Thanks for your comments. I am not sure that I do understand you though. Are you saying that you define the film noir style as "scary images?" If so, your interpretation of film noir is quite different from mine. Film noir style is a low-key, highly dramatic style of photography. Not necessarily hollywood, scary, or anything else. It's a general style of photography.

I've researched it and worked with a pro that specializes in film noir.

I'm not encouraging debate here but I am interested in your thoughts on the issue.

Here, just a few of examples:
