The picture was taken in a corridor inside an age old public housing estate in Hong Kong. Long corridors are often used in horror movies like the "Shining". The building is like collapsing caused by a small push on the wall by the creepy guy in the far end of corridor.

Taken: Saturday, 17th January, 2009
Focal length: 65 mm
Shutter speed: 1/25 sec
Aperture: F5
ISO: 3200
Notes: A very high ISO of 3200 was used without a speedlight such that the "noise" itself could add some sort of "old" and "decaying" feeling to the picture. In addition, focus was put on close subjects to make it blur in the far end. This could further add some "uncertainty" element to the photo. Vignette effect is also applied to the 4 corners of the picture to give you a feeling as if it was the last moment before you fell unconscious.
