Inspired by a Black and White film - Staff photo competition

Each month, the staff at Castle Cameras have a photographic competition with different themes to inspire us to get creative, continue with our photography and have fun along the way.

This months theme was "Inspired by a black and white film"
We had some interesting results! See below for a selection of entries. Try and guess what film they were inspired by, then scroll to the bottom for the answers.
For those of you who know us well, you can even guess who took what photo!
The rules are 2 entires for each staff member with there being a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner.

We hope this inspires you to get out there and do something a bit different, or just brush up on your photography skills. Do you agree with the results? What would you have done better? Which is your favourite? And do you have any suggestions for themes in the future?

My personal favourite is the shower room photo. I intially thought that it was just a shower room, but on second glance, there is the reflection of a figure holding a knife!!! Perfectly subtle, brilliant and an excellent homage to the movie Pyscho!

Funny story - Brian thought the black dog in the 2nd photo was a horse!
