    Here is our entry for the carving contest. [​IMG]
    I know the rules say the pictures have to be taken in the dark, but this guy would lose so much detail that way. Would this picture be alright?

    @littlenessie I see your point! hmmmmmm.......

    THE RULES STATE:
    Quote: If you can still get another image or two, take one with a candle inside it with the room dark, but perhaps add just a bit accent lighting on the front? or just accent the front, however you feel it looks the best?



    You guys are going to make judging this very tough on us I can tell!
