This was a fun challenge. Had to go out two nights in a row to try to get the effect I was looking for. The first night I put the flash in his head, and had another on the ground, but both were way too bright. Second night I used a flashlight in his head, and a giant flashlight shone through some fabric to diffuse the light. I've not shot at night before so was pretty pleased with how it turned out, with the stars showing up.

Wow! I'm so excited to make the top 10! Thanks for all your kind comments!

Cool shot, maybe could be creepier with a cloudy sky.

Great capture of the sky and the light in the jack o' lantern. Fun and spooky!

Neat shot, but doesn't seem like obviously artificial light, if sources are moon and candle...

Great long exposure. It's cool that you could capture the beautiful blue sky with stars.

I predict a BLUE...or at least a very close tie with another entry. This will certainly be in the top ten...but that's and understatement isn't it...
