Film noir usually refers to Hollywood films of the 40's and 50's that dealt with "hard-boiled" characters and featured lots of shadows. For this challenge, read up on the film noir movement and submit an appropriate image. Make it dark, make it gritty, make it heavy, cool and dramatic - and be sure to de-emphasize colors.
