Nice one Bill - love the treatment. I was expecting it to be a cafe in Paris, so Exeter was a bit of a let down WinkWink

Good work Bill I'm liking that shadow something stronger than latte comes to mind.

Hitchcock-esque, Bill. (Looks more like black coffee than milky though Grin)

I'm trying to work out why I immediately thought of France when looking at this. I still can't think why, it might be the dress, but I love it.

I love what shadows do Smile Noir-ish

A friend in Norway is making it a hobby to shoot just the shadows of people.

Very cleverly done. Somewhat sinister and mysterious. Like it.

Very Hitchcock, Bill, mixed with a touch of Coward, I feel. By that I mean the classic profile image of Coward smoking a cigarette, only here drinking a latte. Would he do such a thing? I wonder...

Dark and gritty (the image, not the latte) as only a film-noir image should be.
