This photo represents value. In this photo you can see the highlights where the sun is shining on her and the shadows where it doesn't. The darker areas show more depth than the highlighted ones. (photo by Sarah Loven ) Idea of using shadows
I really like this poster. The shadow of the hand and cigarette appears to be a hand holding a gun. It would look even better with smoke coming out of the cigarette, making it look like the gun was just fired.
The ray of light peeking through the crack creates a blinding effect on the subject. The light is so bright that it blinds her vision, covering her eyes in the photo. The black and white filter makes the ray of light even more bright.
