It's interesting to see Melbourne's shops becoming filled with pumpkins even though they are out of season. It's all to do with Halloween of course, and the pumpkins are mostly imported, and yes you guessed it from the USA!

The triptych mosaic today is quite subtle, as I have taken a photograph and applied three different filters in Photoshop on three layers. The left part is the "poster edges" effect, the middle part is a filter of my own invention, which I called "sunny" and the right part is the "dry brush" filter followed by a blurring effect.

This post is part of the Mosaic Monday meme,
and also part of the Macro Monday meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. I am glad you explained your technique - I am not sure I would have known otherwise. And it is always interesting to hear about some new ideas! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  2. I was surprised to hear about all your photoshopping...except for the burlap, I couldn't have told!

  3. Love the edit you've done. The colors are beautiful- and yes, quite subtle:) I have used the butternut squash (beige) the most. The bluish on the right I've never seen! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful display of the squash family with All Seasons! Have a fantastic October week!

  4. It is our season for pumpkins so you can see them in fields along the roads with signs to come pick your perfect jack-o-lantern. After sales end, they are left to rot in the fields. Seems like such a waste. - Margy
