As Halloween approaches, and some of us carve pumpkins, any carved item with do for this contest!

 

Submissions:
 

Rules

- One entry per person.

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.).

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

Working on it! I found the object I want to photograph, but now my camera demands the batteries to be changed (need to buy some). :rolleyes:

So, this is the only item that I own that was created by my father, shortly before he left the family and the country (the latter not an easy feat in the early 80's in the GDR but he survived.)

He didn't finish this little scene, but you can see what was intended :D

My husband and I went to see the new Halloween movie this weekend and decided to carve the classic jack-o'-lantern from the opening credits. I haven't carved a pumpkin in a few years but we had a lot of fun with this one! Maybe I'll do a bigger display with more pumpkins next year.

We don't carve those here. But you see I found something else XD You could've carved an apple and it would've been on topic!

I had a backup picture in case I couldn't get this one in time, but I wanted the excuse for a jack-o-lantern. 🎃 It was a fun challenge, this was outside my usual comfort zone!
