Feel like doing something over the top for Halloween? Check out these portraits carved into pumpkins.

He takes a photo and runs it thru Photoshop and reduces the colors to 15 (but it looks like less to me), then ups the contrast (I'll try to add the technique link too) http://www.jack-o-lantern.com/portrait/

Love the Vincent Price one.

Oh my word- I have carved a lot of pumpkins- but this guy beats the cake! Too bad they do not last for very long! Awesome! My daughter researched halloween, and said they used to carve turnups instead of pumpkins
