Contest goal:

Film Noir is a style of movies characterized by low-key lighting, usually in an urban setting, with corrupt or cynical characters. These films were very popular in the 40's and 50's. Famous examples might include "The Maltese Falcon," or "The Big Sleep." A good example of modern film noir would be "Sin City."
Take a photo that represents the film noir style. Black and white is not a necessity but it is strongly recommended in order to properly get the right feel for this contest. Good luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

Zizounai: I see many nice black & white pics, but not many to fit the theme ( 158 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Photographers - Film Noir is not just any black and white photo. It is usually about murder, corruption, betrayal and the like with an (often) flawed "hero" solving the crime. It almost always takes place in the not-so-nice areas of a gritty city, emphasized through the black and white filming. ( 157 days ago )
