Challenge: The Great Pumpkin Carving Challenge (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S2 IS
Location: front steps of my house

Oh, 6th place! yay
Yes, I know. Not the most creative pumpkin carving. More traditional. It was already carved by the time the contest was announced and had to make due with what I had ;) Oh and if anyone is wondering about the strange sland of the floor, it was actually tilted. It seems straight because there is a step beside the pumkin that stays straight. Well, anyhoo. Thank you everyone who voted and commented!

In my opinion, This should have gott'n a ribbon! Two of the three ribon winners, (and I say with a smile) were very over rated. Yours was a better photograph!! They might have had better pumkins but this is a photo contest not a carving contest. Please don't get me wrong... Your carving was cool. LOL
Great photo!!
Love the angle and exposure!

This is one of the few pictures that actually looks like a photo and not just a pumpkin. 9

It seems so much like a ceramic pumpkin.... But I didn't see any DPC cops out tonight....so I'll just appreciate the appeal of this object in its environment which is pleasantly rendered with a limited dof and side-lighting which enhances the textures of all objects present.

Nice perspective. Love the wood.

Great ambiance and composition. Just wish the focus was a bit stronger on the pumpkin instead of the background. Good natural colors.

Nice! i really love this one! the grunge type style works superbly here! the aged wood, and the contraast of the pumpkin make for a captivating, and eye catching photo! i love the way you utilised the foreground!

I just love this... the perspective from the floor and the debris really give this picture aura and character. Great job.

Nice job with the lighting. I like the rugged look of the pumpkins surroundings. Such a nice symmetrical face on that Jack. You know it wasn't carved by moi!

This is a really understated photograph, and I like it. This is one of the less decorative pumpkins, yet one of the best photos I've seen. You make good use of the surrounding textures, contrast in color the composition and proportions are good, and the DOF all cause the eye to focus on the pumpkin. You don't try to to do too much with the lighting...(I don't know if it's natural or unnatural)....it's just plain and simple. Kudos.

Setting is perfect. Pumpkin looks like it is floating. Good Luck

I love the low persepctive, the lighting and the way the pumpkin advances against the dark background and floor. I also really like the classic pumpkin carving. Good work.

First you use your kids and now a poor helpless pumpkin? Please get a new venue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2005 10:09:52 AM
Oh I really like this! Even though the carving isn't elaborate, the setting and tones are wonderful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2005 10:03:59 AM
The tilted floor contribute to this easy ambiance...
Maybe with more saturated colors the ambiance would have been reinforced...but nice shot anyway ;)

Great clarity. Looks just like a greeting card. I like that he's not glowing like so many of the others. Excelent perspective.

I like the POV. Looks good against the weathered wood. DOF adds a nice touch too.
