Taken in manual mode (as you can see below) but the shutter was set to under-expose the photo. Where it was taken was hardly full of light, but it wasn't dark and I wanted a gloomy photo.

Well you managed gloomy all right, the bars make it seem prison-like.

Can't say I like it exactly - but it does have lots of impact.

Since I am not experienced enough to comment from a technical perspective, I can only go with what I feel when viewing photos. This one definitely invokes feelings, sympathy, empathy, helplessness- the subject needs a hug!

The photo is great, good visualization and image capture. The image reminds me of a photo taken either by a news photographer or for a documentary.

Well done, Well done.

If you have a post-processing program, may I suggest you do the image capture in color then use the computer lightroom to convert the image to B&Wand uselevels or curves to set the tonal range of the image.

One of the key aspects of digital photography is to capture as muchdigital informationas possible in the file without blowing out the highlights. When the image capture is done in B&W or sepia mode, imageinformationis lost.

Regardless, the photograph above is outstanding - Excellent visualization and art.
