Hi All.
This is my first entry into the lighting challenge.
Just an early test I whipped up this afternoon.
Basic lights and gobo - more to come ;-)

All feedback is appreciated

splattr, the shadows from the tree comes from a different direction than where the moon is located
also the moon looks more like a golfball
nice pumpkin though!

attilla - Terrific! I especially love the street! The texture and that puddle are really nice and really believable. If the pumpkin could reflect in the puddle that could be even better, but this is just an idea if it didn't mess up the composition too much. The textures on the door and the house wall are really nice. Maybe the brick of the porch and the soil the in the plant pot could use more texture as well. The light coming of from behind the pumpkin looks much too bright, and it seems like there's light leaking through the bricks without shadows, making the cracks between the bricks brighter. The pumpkin has two tones, a darker area below the eye level, and a brighter area above the eye level. I think the darker tone is more believable. Near the bottom it should get a bit darker and occluded by the ground, instead of having extra highlights around the bottom of the pumpkin, and the brick right under it shouldn't be so bright. You've already done such a great job overall, it really looks like the pumkin area itself is the main thing to focus on.

swaroopindia2 - Great job overall, I'm just having trouble telling where a lot of that orange light is supposed to be coming from. It looks like there are light sources in the middle of the upper door, and on each side of the porch, that I just can't see?

Splattr - Maybe if you want the moon in the shot, you could find a photograph to use as a texture map on the background. See if you can make the tree shadow softer and maybe a bit smaller scale as if the tree were farther away. Either that or put a tree model on the right side of the frame, mostly in silhouette, with just a little glints of light from the moon, and it could cast a real shadow. This is just a suggestion, but a stock tree model from somewhere or a maya paint fx tree would be good enough for this, and there seems to be room in your composition for it.

nice texture work atilla, it would be nice if the pumpin will wonder about his reflected face in the water, like an animal who see himself the first time.

edit; damn jeremys speed to post is to fast for me...

Dof and textures are nice, but we don't see the number 13.

Great scene

I haven't done much 3d lately due to work, definitely going to have a crack at this over the weekend.
