Winners Challenge 428 HAPPY
1 month ago

Ok I have been slammed with work again... dont know why I set this challenge to end on a weekend when I am doing 14 hour shifts... and stuck on an old work laptop - haha
Since almost all of these photos ended up being people we love, I am not going to do honorable mentions, just know they all gave me a sense of happiness at a time when I really needed it... And I thank each and everyone of you for participating.
The winners all affected me personally, this time it was not about composition, lighting...bla bla but about HAPPY--- Which ones made my heart sing.
********************************************************************
Third place
Scott - Victory
The timeless happiness of a strike...

2nd Place a two way tie... and three photos ---- These three filled my heart with happiness... Btrons had to be both photos... since the story need both... And I loved them both
******************************************************************
Sueanne

She is so beautiful and proud... 8^) I love her

Btrons

Love Love Love

__________________________________________________________________________
And the winner... reclaiming her title after only one week...
Gail WEEEEE!

Not much I can say here, *Happy* This is the reason many of us bought our cameras and learned to how to take photos...

Thank you all again for participating, and especially for helping me with comments during the week, as my time was crazy limited. I just did my last week long event at a building I have worked at for 20 years (being torn down for condos)

Very thoughtful! Each and every image gave a sense of happiness. Such a lovely challenge, Britney. We can all use an extra dose of happiness...never too much!

Congratulations to Scott, Sueanne, Btrons for the fine photos. All the wining images show some of the important stages as we all travel this road called life!

WEEEEE!

Thank you for choosing the photo of my grandson as first place winner. Winning first place twice in a row is a first for me. Thank you for the honor!

The photo has given me a lot of joy since I took it in 2005. Grandson turned 11 this week...time goes so fast.

Btw, the image was taken with a nine year old, 3.2 MP Canon A510 on continuous mode. Who says you can't get decent shots with a point-and-shoot?! For those who care to look, the other four photos in this series are here:

I will now put on my thinking cap and come up with the next mini, which I will post no later than tomorrow.

Congrats on your well deserved winning entry, Gail.

I think the last list from Blademeister has long been outdated, but I found this link from BIJ001 who has stepped forward and continued a recent list......hope it helps
