Description: “Vampirettes ... enjoying their coffee on Essex Street in Salem, Halloween night. Halloween in Salem is one of my favorite nights for photography. The rain this year really added to the texture and color of the brick ground.”

Camera info: Nikon D 7000 with Tokina 12-24 ultra-wide-angle lens and diffused flash fill


Expressions and gestures make this Halloween photo more than just a snapshot. More importantly, the costumed subjects react in unison to the presence of the camera. Compositionally, it works fine.
