Separated the boy & pumpkin. Copied pumpkin & free transformed to match the boy's head. Layer mode darken. Did similar with parts of the pumpkin for the arms. Used color mixer to make his eyes red - this was not as simple as I had assumed it would be. Pumpkin boy's "jack-o-human" created using rect --> polar filter. Found a pumpkin field to place them in. Added a mirror frame and filled with the original boy & pumpkin. Did some free transform to try & make the reflection more realistic, but don't think I succeeded. Probably could stand to have the whole scene darker and eerier, but I'm giving up where it's at.

I think you've done a very good job and it's a neat idea,worth a few minor "fixes"....

All you need to do is "ground" your boys-they appear to be floating as they are. Simply clone some pumkin patch leaves over their legs in a few places and especially where the edge of the foot is missing. Paint in a shadow under you figures as well (see my response to your comment on my image, and Thank You very much BTW!!!)
I don't really think it needs to be darkened but you could make it eerier if you wanted to. Play around with the sky-select the sky and go to Image-adjust-inverse....instant spooky!!!

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for catching my "rookie" mistake, Mindy. My "eye" clearly still needs some training. I've fixed the floating boys as you suggested and tried adding some shadows. I'm not very confident in the shadows being accurate, but it looked better than with no shadowing at all. Your coaching & kind words are very much appreciated. Thanks again.

You are most welcome! That's what we are all here for, right?

The leaves and shadows are perfect as far as I can tell. Bravo! No more floating boys! You have done a great job with this challenge......
