Challenge Results

First of all, I would like to wish eveyone a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!

Festive to me is joyful, offering fun and cheerfulness. So I was looking for interesting backgrounds to complement the main themes.

It's challenging for me to pick the top three finalists and I am going to be short and sweet.

The winners:
1st place
rpolitsr - no crib for a bed
Colourful, nicely framed and perfect lighting. I wish we have this set in our house.

2nd place
RAW - Frosty...
Cheerful festive picture good enough for my next Christmas postcard.

3rd place
KC Jewel - Family Christmas
A strong picture showing good message for the festive season.

Special comments:
Maureen Souza, d100763, cyclone, BottomBracket - Well done of isolated the subjects.
BobbyT, Bryan Bedell - Thank you for the cute picuture of the children.
marie - I love the poem.

The next challenge will be from Ecuador!

Challenge #45 - Festive Season

With Christmas fast approaching us, I thought of only one topic - The festive season.

Good luck everyone. ;)

A Child is Born

I have a huge nativity but decided to single out a portion of it due to the size constraints. Merry Christmas to all.

Pinecone

I did not have time or money for a tree this year:( , but always found pinecones very unique and (hard to photograph). I also wanted something other than a tree shot or santa so I went with this approach.
