Shoehorn (sort of) because I'm tired of pumpkin pictures.

Shot at 300mm. Forgot I had the camera at 400ISO. Would have been clearer at 100, and plenty of light to get it, but it's cold outside and I'm gonna go with this one...
multiple layering: levels, photo filter, hue/sat, another levels (at 75% op), selective smart sharpen to bring out stars, crop and resize for challenge.

OK, so I thought maybe the validation would get me some better votes, but I guess at the end of the day, it's still something of a shoehorn. Oh well. It was an almost full moon on halloween night, and I thought it was pretty spooky.

I have no idea what this has to do with Halloween but I love it, as it doesnt meet challenge I give you max 6. You may have been better putting this in the monthly challenge.
