Fall activities always include a visit to a pumpkin patch for us. And this was located in the White Post Farms in Melville, NY. Together with the colorful leaves, pumpkins are one of the main Fall symbols for me.
Of course, I wanted to take a picture just showing the "sea of pumpkins" in front of us. I was then trying to decide on which pumpkin to focus so the foreground and background elements (the other pumpkins) would be out of focus. So then I picked this pumpkin that was kind of isolated from the others and not standing up. I also liked how the stem on top of each pumpkin surrounding the focused one, if you connected them in a line, would encircle the fallen (in-focus) pumpkin.
Note that this is also the same place and time where I took the picture below, but now giving it a totally different look and mood. In the first case (top), I just used the natural ambient light and a long lens, while on the "dark" version of the pumpkin patch, I used a wide angle lens and flash.
