These are electric pumpkins on our front porch. We have lots of kids, so people decorate early. I did a character filter through Virtual Photographer, then adjusted the contrast and applied noise with PS 7. Clone, dodge burn, save for web.

I wanted something that looked like an old TV show in the 50's and I think I achieved it. I can see a bunch of kids sitting in front of the tiny tv screen, in their pj's, scared. bwa ha ha ha ha ha

Very topical for the season. Spooky and the grain certainly fits.

For a highly processed shot, this works really well.

IMO there is a too much noise, and the light at the bottom of the pumpkins and the streaks on the left are distracting. It looks like the background might have been interesting if a little more detail showed.

This looks like its made entirely of grain. Like an old timey TV show back in the 60s.
Best grain entry in the challenge. Super Creative. 10.
