    Glass Pumpkin in BW

    I uploaded two. Played with the greens, yellows, reds and highlights and am finally happy with the mix. On the first one I darkened the exposure on the fabric to highlight the piece of glass... The second is blown out on purpose for the contrast. My favorite is the first though..
