Lynn, Helen, you've both got the film noir thing down. Nice work.
Lynn, have you added grain to the shots you posted with the LX3 and the Nikon V1? For whatever reason, it looks more like believable grain than digital noise. Which is nice.

I used to think of "film noir" as movies like Chinatown or The Maltese Falcon, but after watching Twin Peaks this summer, my concept has shifted to something that is often described as "Lynchian". It involves crime, probably murder, danger to vulnerable females, and a bit of 'other reality-ness'. Here is a sequence of a dozen pictures (over 4 posts) that illustrate this trend in my own photography:

Sorry only just saw your question now Larry. Thanks for the compliment! The LX3 shots were ISO1600 with no added grain, so that's sensor noise. The Nikon V1 was ISO3200 with digital grain added in LR4.

BTW the Canon 6D high ISO noise is also very film-like.

Cheers,

Vince, Keith,
Those are both great shots, over and above being in keeping with the theme of the thread. I wish I'd shot those

Honestly, most of the photos in this thread have nothing to do with Film Noir. On this page, only Vince Lupo gets it.

Google, Wikipedia, dedicated film noir sites, etc. are your friends.

Thanks for the non-answer.

Film Noir is a motion picture genre. I guess that a "film noir photograph" is a picture that looks like (or actually is) a still from such a film. Your mostly empty street could easily be in a Film Noir movie. It looks like an environmental shot, just before cuts to the story inside a building. The atmosphere of Film Noir movies is made with wide environmental pictures that create a sense of (spooky) place. Your big room with someone in the doorway does that too. Unfortunately that weird light fixture is interesting, but it takes the focus off the actor, and so would probably be left on the cutting room floor.

I disagree with ptpdprinter's comment that most photos here do not represent the genre. It takes a bit of imagination to put some of them in a movie, but Film Noir is not all creepers in alleys.

It's dark and suspenseful. "Dark" is not always about the light. I was riffing on Film Noir with my "Lynchian" set from a few days ago. This one is straight "film noir":
