My first-ever carving of a pumpkin... and I did it all by my onesie. :D

It's not perfect, but it was fun.

And... *drum roll, please...*

I think my family is finally getting used to all of the weird things I bring in to shoot.

No one even blinked an eye at the muddy weathered bench that showed up in the kitchen.

Yep. Life is good. *grin*

Oh GOLLY! Life's not all that great! I just realized that this is Basic Editing. I've had my Advanced entry in for ... days! Arg.

Grrr... I hate Basic editing... and there's no chance of a re-shoot. My Beloved Pumpkin is ... uhh... shriveled. *sigh*

*sigh again*

Okay. Here it is.

Love me if you can.

I did try.

The first one I've viewed and really like it! Something different for a change. No one said it had to have a halloween theme. Well done.

I like how you made it look like a still life and not just carved pumpkins. Nice. 7
