Great POV used for maximum scare effect, here Tricia. I love Halloween because we can all let our imaginations soar. I think this one is much more imaginative and creative than your pumpkin thought. This is really well done for detail. I love how all the wrinkles and bumps are so clear in the black and white. Happy Boo day.!

Dark is the way to go it seems to me - we don't even celebrate Halloween, but looking in the theme does get me in the spirit (brrrr..) of things.
This mask lying all shrunken on the tabel is even more scary then when Noah would be wearing it I think.
A scary mask. I'm sure Noah enjoyed wearing that last year.
I think the composition is good but I would have focused on the eyes and added some light in there maybe some kind of little red flash light or maybe something done in PP.
I think it would boost the mood and the scary effect of this photo.

Interesting idea... good POV, very simple but very effective, it has an abstract/surreal mood to it. good work!! regards h
Are you trying to scare us NON Halloween people down under Tricia. he he.. well done..as it is rather scary..looks good in black and white..Jens suggestion of some lights in its eyes would have been good...and even some blood dripping from its nose...HA...now that would be scary....eeeeeeeeeeeaaaarrrrrhhhh....im off!! :-))
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Halloween

I like how it looks in B/W. It is a great mask,
really scary. You reach the theme very well.

This looks great - a squashed skeleton's face - looks like you have sat in it :)
No, I like the darkness and how the dark face fades into the BG.
I especially like the nose - what a big cavern!!

Hmmm...I like the deflated, lifeless look for scary Halloween purposes, and the darkness adds to the mood. Give it some candy and see if it revives:) Good shot and theme subject!

I don't celebrate halloween but this is a nice scary picture! I like the black I think it is what helps it become scary. Very Good Job.

I think the darkness suits Tricia, good focus and nice work with the conversion whih has produced good tones and textures. TFS,
