Obviously no homegrown pumpkins this year, but that didn't stop us! Sorry for the jpg choppiness - the pictures started sharp, but resizing and compressing made them lousy. Of course bald spot is optional.  -  -  -  -

The JPG was focusing on all those viney stalks. Smooth dimpled cheeks are "simpler" to the algorithm so it aggravates things. For the web, shoot with your camera in high res then photoshop in a softening filter on the background. Then the JPG algorithm will leave your human features alone. If you resample instead of resize that reduces the stair-steppiness.  - This is a quick hack but I've added some "fog" to bring the attention to the center of the picture. In the old days with film SLRs and fast F/1.4 lenses one could shoot wide open for the same effect but digital cameras these days don't have as much glass. [Frown]
