A most dramatic shot, the air of desolation, almost despair, coming across so powerfully, enhanced by the inclusion of yourself moving away from the scene with eyes cast down.

Excellent moody capture enhanced by the graininess, Matt. The curling cigarette smoke is a little gem.

Very Harry Lime, there are zithers hiding in every dark doorway.
Seriously this is fabulous, very well done. I'd like to know more about how it was set up, it looks as though you've made very clever use of available street lighting for your face. I wonder if you had an accomplice, to check out the lighting effect? Anyway, my picture of the day.

A touch of 'Vinny Jones' I do believe, very moody and menacing. A great image Matt.

A very dramatic and atmospheric image Matt, I can see where Nathan is coming from when he makes reference to the Vinnie Jones character Big Chris in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels!
