I see what you mean, this shot has a whole different feel to it. I like this one too!

I love the grain effect in this picture.
Makes it look more interesting to me.

I think I prefer this one, less classical, colder and more appropriate to this kind of place, a bit eery!

sorry I've been absent for a few days: have only had fragmented time and wanted to give your shots the attention they deserve.
I really like the contrast between the experiments. yesterday's shot feels dank and dark, like a prison or gloomy police station - a sense of interminable waiting. today's shot feels more like a hospital or interrogation facility: more sense of motion and action, though equally scary.
technically I think the first shot pulls one down the hall more... the eye pauses at the chair and door and overhead light and continues on to the door at the end of the hall. with this brighter version the end of the hall is blown out, giving a sense similar to repeating mirrors, and all the action is focused in the foreground: this chair, this door, now.
nice work :)

Great shot! Une image qui interpelle... Le traitement accentue cette ambiance particulière. Bravo!

I prefer the mood of yesterday's shot. Except for the chair, this looks like it could be in a hospital.

The tones in yesterday's image seem much more realistic to me ...

Both images evoke very strong moods. The first feels ominous and like something like a suspense movie. This feels manic and makes me think of a psych ward. It's a nicely composed shot.

I like the mood in this image

I like them both. Can't decide, really. I do like the atmosphere here. Just like in another of your corridor shots, I'm half expecting the Terminator or some such character to come running out from the background!

I prefer this one over yesterdays...this rates higher on the spooky meter for me. This reminds me of a sanitarium or mental institution. It feels sterile and cold.
Back when I was doing my psych rotation, we had to tour the state hospital and spend some clinical time there. One of the original structures on the property was made into a museum. It was wild looking at some of the instruments and such from back in the day. They even showed us the equipment used for hydro-therapy among other therapies that was thought to be beneficial to the patients back then.

@Melissa W.: thanks. wow, 'hydro therapy'? i don't even want to know what that is. sounds incredibly scary and creepy! makes you wonder about how people will look at our medical technologies as barbaric in 50 years.
For some reason, I believe you spend a lot of time in that chair waiting on a professor ;-)
This is a 'morning' visit with the building illuminated from artificial and ambient light.

This is really terrific. I prefer the brighter shot over the previous one. Excellent work.
