    How is the composition of this shot? Is it as neat looking as I think it is?

    well for the creepy look i would of made the print just a bit darker and i think that would bring out alot of contrast too.

    Here is the same picture with the exposure down 3/4 stop, the contrast tweaked slightly, and run through a 100% blue filter (rather than 75/25% blue/green)

    High contrast is achieved by orange and red filters. Blue and green filters are typically used to darken skin tones in portraiture.

    I experimented a bit..... green filter, levels, contrast and lens correction.

    Your thoughts.

    looks like a selenium print gone terribly wrong. I'd stick to grayscale.

    Thanks PNA, that certainly looks creepier :)

    I think I can tell the result of your lens correction, however I'm not exactly sure how you went about it. Could you give me some details on that process?

    Grayscale does do it more justice. I like the darker one better the white was a little stark

    Composition is quite centred, and there is a slight "movement" towards the right given by the long shadows of the the door handle, and I would work with that and give that part some more room (by cropping away some on the left). Need not be much but would move the door just that interesting tad off centre and give more prominence to the neat shadows. PNA is happily ignoring those shadows (;)) ... which I would never do ... but I feel your edit is the better choice, the very white pic is too little contrasted. Those neat shadows given by the low side light are just too interesting a part of your photo to go all unnoticed.
