This really is a carved pumpkin but it was so dark and I didn't like the way the flash photos came out. I used a tripod and a longer exposure. I carved the pumpkin (using a pattern) all by myself.

adjust hue/sat/levels
added cute border

I think the carving is excellent! I love the spider...not an easy piece of work. Just wish more of the pumpkin was there so I could appreciate the context better without having to know the challenge.

It's cool & all, but hard to tell if it's even a pumpkin. A little blurry also. Nice work overall though.
