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.

I love this, mysterious and a touch of evil with that hand reaching out.......Sandy

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

Up close and personal. amazing what shadowy characters frequent these Northumberland cafés.

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.
