Not Grapes

By chase
So I smashed the Pumpkins into bits, added some Garlic and made some Pumpkin soup, was very yummy !
I do like the textures on the inside of the Pumpkins, like slippery cobwebs and very, very messy !!
I am still clearing up the seeds I dropped onto the floor, they get everywhere and stick to everything !

Lit by the candle you see here and a small torch from the front.
A 3 frame HDR image, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Pumpkin and garlic soup...mmmm sounds luverly! I once had a recipe for Hokkaido ( an orange-coloured winter squash) soup, which was also with garlic and various spices...sadly the recipe was lost...

The light and colours here makes me think of an evening tucked up in front of an open fire...

I didn't know that Willie, I have one whole on left, maybe I will have a go at roasting the seeds instead of dropping them all over the floor !!
Thanks for the mod, always good to see a slightly different take on an image.

Thats a great set piece Janet, I think the front torch light on the pumpkin seeds adds so much to this.

A well pesented seasonal image Janet.
I know what you mean about the seeds and with me it's the seeds out of peppers that seem to get everywhere no matter how careful I am Grin
