Homegrown pumpkins are the way to go!  We had lots of great big pumpkins this year, all free!  (Proof that compost works!)  Here are the jack-o-lanterns we carved.  The headless horseman and cat are patterns from Pumpkin Masters, and the rest are original.

For the above photo effect, I set my camera on the kitchen table and took the shot on the no flash setting.  For the one below, I used the setting that has a long time open shutter and also a flash.  The setting usually has a bust and a star or moon.
