I know I've already commented on this picture when you first posted it, but I was just running through some film noir pictures on deviant art and I stumbled across this again. I still cannot get over this piece. Although I haven't watched many film noir movies I've always loved the time period, aesthetic and drama of the genre. The emotion in the woman's face, the beautiful lighting and the ever so subtle hint of color speaks to me every time I see this piece. I simply love it.
