Talk about scary, and I don't mean Halloween

Talk about Scary, and I Don't Mean Halloween
The pumpkins at this house on Monroe Street that I passed on the way to the grocery store tonight are still all lit up. But now it doesn't look like Halloween so much as a picture of election night, when a lot of scary stuff was around and about in the streets of America. Trick or treat!

Note: This was shot with the iPhone 4 with HDR mode turned on (it helped bring out some of the detail in the house, which otherwise would have been dark). Minimally processed, colors warmed a bit and cropped slightly. Compare with the version I shot a few days ago with my Nikon P7000. The iPhone is definitely noisier, but these are pretty extreme conditions for a cell phone camera. I can't complain.

That's really impressive. HDR is something else.

I was happy to see this picture because I pass by this house during the day. It never occurred to me they light all those pumpkins!!
