As a Haunter you become obsessed with your lighting, and I have to admit that as each season approaches I get cold sweats worrying about the wiring and the bulbs and the fixtures which get stuffed around the porch. I probably have more fixtures and more varieties of bulbs than a hardware store (the extinct family-owned kind).
There are always two considerations:
1. How does it look to the naked eye?
2. How does it look in the photos?
Incandescent bulbs are warmer and seem more natural, yet fluorescent bulbs (http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/822985/822985510356lg.jpg) seem to be more brilliant and are WAY more durable. And they seem to catch small details in twigs and sticks.
Still on the fence on which I prefer, so I suspect I'll always use a mix.
Used all fluorescent bulbs in 2014 (must confess that staring at those crosses hurt my eyes):
Used orange fluorescent bulbs on the porch (seen on the corn stalks) and regular floods on the lawn (eyes did not hurt):
Used an orange fluorescent behind the Strawman and in the fire pit, and used a regular blue flood on the porch, and amber floods for the two scarecrows (and a green fluorescent bulb in each of their heads):
Here's a lighting test with one of the scarecrows. Blue regular Flood lamp on the porch with an orange LED spotlight on the scarecrow in the top pic, and an amber flood in the bottom pic (I really dig the effect in both, but I went with the amber floods since they were easier on the eyes in person):
