Happy Halloween to all the little ghouls out there.

This is an assembly of numerous photos.
A graveyard shot of which I replaced the sky with a moon shot.
Numerous ghosts taken from some photos taken in Québec City.

Added some picture tubes (bats and a cat) from PaintShop Pro X2.

OK now, quick, there are 6 ghosts, can you spot them before they scare you?

And what is exactly a ghost?
A ghost is defined as the apparition of a deceased person, frequently similar in appearance to that person, and usually encountered in places she or he frequented, or in association with the person's former belongings. The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or to any spirit or demon. Ghosts are often associated with hauntings, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of footsteps and voices, and various odors.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).
Ghosts, wandering here and there,
Troop home to churchyards.
-- William Shakespeare

The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.
-- Bill Cosby

And the three men I admire most,
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost;
They caught the last train for the coast,
The day the music died.
-- Don McClean

Salut Pierre
LOL!! Excellent travail de circonstances. Du bon boulot pour restituer cette ambiance l'Halloween. J'aime particulièrement l'effet de la lune a travers les nuages. Bravo!

Bonjour Pierre
Je compte bien plus que 6 fantômes.....(°U°). Beau travail, j'aime bien l'ajout de chauve-souris éclairés par la lune et les nuages, il y a même la présence d'un petit chat.


Hi Pierre,
A tremendous job on this one, the sky is perfect . . . found the six ghosts, the most eerie to me is the one of the child.
Masterful work,

Great Stuff, picturesque scene, would be even without the ghosts..... What is missing in this assemblage, Pierre, is a self-portrait, playing and singing the last line in your note!

WOW Pierre! This is AWESOME!! Very scary, nice moon effect here! It's amazing how some folks see ghosts and some don't! I'm always grateful that I DON'T! HA!....it would not be good for my nerves! B-)

Hello Pierre!
Nice composition for Halloween!
Great effect!
Lovely idea!
Excellent done!
Best regards!

Pierre, C'est dangeureux de se promener sur TL ce soir, c'est rempli de fantôme. Excellent travail de PP, Bravo

nice artwork, Pierre.. hehe.. looks like they are having fun there and don't scare at all.. :))

tfs and regards, terry

Nicely done Pierre with the sky looking very realistic. I think I found the ghosts. Halloween was a quiet affair in our street, not many kids but then I don't hold with imported traditions either :). TFS,

Hahahaha.. ah bien Piet.. quelle spectacle ici
The night of the passed away Mothers in law to come back haunting ...you??.... :-) :-)
Exellent and razor sharp shot.

Salut Pierre
Et bien, 10/10 pour le travail en pp ! Oui, j'ai trouvé les 6 fantômes malgré leur parfaite intégration. Atmosphère très bien créé, bravo !

Bonjour Pierre :)

Que c'est super bien fait ! J'adore! On croirait une vraie scene d'horreur. C'est très bien penser. Bravo :)

Merci de partager, félicitations :)

Bonne journée

Hi Pierre,
WHAT A PIECE OF WORK !! Really nicely composed, TFS Julie

Bonjour Pierre et joyeuse Halloween en retard mais cette photo en vaut la peine.
Tu as bien reussi les superpositions d'images avec ces fantomes parcourant le cimetiere.

J'aime le zigzag des pierres qui font promener notre regard a travers l'image.

La lune, la lumiere et les chauves-souris: superbes!
C'est une photo d'halloween tres reussie!

Bravo, Yan :)
ps: Merci pour la critique de: "The Venus of MacKenzie-King Estate".

Salut Pierre,
MAGNIFIQUE composition!! J'adore particulièrement ces chauves-souris au clair de lune :)
Excellent , Bravo!

Hi Pierre,
It's a good thing that the Canadian cemeteries aren't as terrifying as ours which are surrounded with enormous walls and inside all you see are huge tombstones.
This one is actually pleasant and provides a perfect scenario for the humorous halloween "stage" which you've created!

happy ummm somethin.let me guess its the night of the night of living ummm things.

Superbe Pierre, bravo, très beau montage, y a seulement la maison rouge à l'extrême gauche que j'aurais fait disparaître.
