Trying for that dark Halloween type mood.

A guy here sets up all these moving (compressed air) figures in his front yard and since it was a nice night, took my kids and walked down there.

Twas a little hard to hand hold in this sort of light but don't care about the score, I like this one.

Post: As usual: Shoot RAW and converted in RSP with a little curves. A fair bit of noise reduction on this one but still for ISO3200, taint bad at all.

They don't live, they undie! Nice lighting effect, though your subject is rather stiff. Next time tell a joke right as you're pressing the shutter. 6
