    It just sorta looks underexposed to me. There needs to be a full range of tonal values, ie some highlights as well. You only have black and gray.

    Agreed. Low light does not mean low contrast.

    I agree with Fokker. These are a really good start. I love the way she emerges from the darkness. The pics are just missing the white range. You may even be able to fix that in post.

    My first thought was "oooh - nice shots" but they're right. A touch more range.
