I had no intention of using this for a challenge. The white garage behind this hungry lil' guy turned out to be a good backdrop. We tore out the guts of these punk'ins for the seed after ahlloween ... at least someone else got to enjoy them too. Used curves , hue-sat and selective color (gloablly of course) to attempt to get rid of background. Absolutely no idea if people will like this joke.

Yes, the rump of the squirrel and the round pumpkin work together so very well to make a super composition.

Glad you entered it.

ROFL Interesting take on the challenge. His head is covered, but I'm wondering how it will be received. Funny shot. Would make a cute fall greeting card.

I think it is funny. Its funny because the squirrel is looking in a pumpkin. You have him looking for a mask but there is no face.

LOL, I was just flipping thru the thumbnails & saw this. Absolutely hilarious! Very cute & great detail in his fur, great shot!

So, is the pumpkin wearing the squirel or vice-versa? I appreciate the creative thought, but it just doesn't pull it off on this challenge, IMO. Points for creativity though.

Great capture! Might be a stretch on the theme but I'm not faulting you! I actually like the inlaid border on this too.
