A low-light effect, toned rendition of a figure on a billiards table. A hip and shoulder are prominent as the back view leaves most of this subject shrouded in mystery. The appearance of low-light is conveyed through the use of shadow, inclusion of the overhead lamps, and chiefly the blurring of certain elements that is reminiscent of a shaking camera, or perhaps an impaired viewer. Tracers of light can be seen in some highlights. Feminine shoes add a touch of eroticism and the dimly-lit game table imparts a feeling of reckless mischief. Certain textured areas of the image, such as the wood grain and hair, remain sharply rendered. Carom refers to a shot striking two intended targets in succession.
