Love the lighting and the POV - gives a very claustrophobic feeling. And is she coming down towards us or walking away? Ambiguous.
Very good one. Looks like a passage I've seen in Edinburgh.
The lights, the bw, everything fits together.

Did she caste a spell?
Do you croak a lot now?
Did she offer to turn your aged 5D into a 1DSmach3?

This was shortly after you came out of the pub in the wee hours. Very close to the steps smile

Another excellent rendering by the late night stalker.

great atmosphere you have produced
Hehehehe... Moody place is Edinburgh, isn't it? ;-)

Nice as usual, Mal, even though I believe you could reach higher by lowering the exposure a bit (blacks are somehow dark grays)

Take care

A female hoodie? Quite scary!
Super processing with this image. Great lighting effects and love the dark shadows. What a terrific dramatic mood.
I love the mysterious atmosphere... The witch, indeed! smile
Marvelous image Mal

Reading your (ironical?) title 'witch' I remember the apotropaic signs on many walls of houses which I have seen in GB: a witch riding on a besom.- Your pic (a hat of a gnome indeed, Zipfelmütze eines Zwergs) reminds me of a night- photo of Petra, and there is again this sad feeling of loneliness and being lost, no home, no family, no perspective, but I very hope that my phantasy is misleading and all things are quite better than assumed!
I love as you know play with the light, Mal! You are a teacher! For me, to Likey!
Oh no trouble in paradise Mal? Sorry I could not resist the urge. A very dark and mysterious shot. Salems lot perhaps.

your the man wink

Beware the witchy woman. she is coming to get you. I love how the composition makes the witch like a candle to the flame.
