Took a ride in the country. Saw a field with rotting pumpkins. Looked till I found one with a face! Cropped, sharpened, adjusted contrast and saturated a little.

Thanks for all the comments. I am very pleased with my 9th place finish. Often times there is so much work to set up a picture to get it right. Mother nature made it easy for me.

Top ten isn't bad but I thought you would have done a little better. One of the more enjoyable captures. Congratulations!

I'm genuinely shocked that this shot didn't ribbon. I would have placed yours among the top three.

Meets the challenge theme well. I really like the deep rich colors of burnt orange and brown here, as well as, the testure. Imo, the compostiion is lacking and I wish you could have included more brown leaves and green grass to balance things out a bit. The grain also is film like and very appealing to my eye.

Nicely found! I think the frost gives good context to a "seasonal" item gone rotten. The inclusion of leaves on the right seems so appropriate, but the crop still bothers me--I'm not sure why, maybe it's just too even top, bottom and left--that's hardly much to help you, just want more weight below the pumpkin, I guess.

I really like the feel of this. The dead leaves help set the mood.

I think this symbolizes what happens to every human begin when they become old. You know, we grow mold and our face caves in. Very comical.

Nice lighting and detail. I might have posed a few more leaves around the pumpkin.

I find this photo to be a little dark and out of focus a little bit. Perhaps a fill flash or a difused flash would have added a little more light without ruining the picture.

Very nice composition, precise focus, excellent job meeting the challenge. Good luck, I think this may be a winner.

very nice. the frost (i am hoping thats not mold), really adds to the shot. gives the pumpkin an old man look...not that i know any pasty white, scaly old men...but it just gives me that feeling...in other words...nice shot

You knew that old pumpkin would come in handy some day didn't you.

This is very fine, stands on its own without the challenge to back it up.
