Too dark?

I’m sometimes criticised for making certain of my images too dark – and I mean in light levels as well as subject matter.  I’ve tried to change, but I’ve come to the conclusion I just like dark images.  There’s something about the contrast and energy, when areas of light leap out of the gloom, which I find really appealing.

Even by my standards, I’d accept that today’s image is low-lit!  Taken at dusk in a temporary covered walkway with little natural light coming in, it was almost bound to appeal to me.  I like the way that the shaft of evening sunlight picks out the pathway, and is faintly echoed by the line of artificial lighting above.  To me, the dark shapes coming and going add to the intrigue and drama of the image.  Or maybe it’s just too dark…?
