Canon DSLR Speed Challenge #281: Happiness is...?

RESULTS!
I apologize for not commenting on each entry but I'm on the road and using a strange keyboard. The number of fine entries this week made judging hard but here are my final choices:

THE WINNER is Maureen for her perfectly composed image: "Happiness is Subjective". A great capture, good enough for a gallery or magazine cover.

SECOND PLACE has to go to Kevan for "COOKIES!!". Surely anyone, young or old, would feel happy looking at that crisp shot of the mouth-watering tray of biscotti.

THIRD PLACE goes to MSJGD for "Happiness is grand-papa's grand sons." It's always tough to choose between images of cute kids but I think this one just edges out the competition.

So...over to you, Mo - sorry there was no way I could give you your favourite second place!

***************

Illustrate the rest of the above sentence with your photo and title. Since the pursuit of happiness is almost a requirement in the U.S.A. and certainly not an undesirable activity anywhere else, I hope this subject will spark a few more entries than we've seen lately.;)

Standard Rules apply:
Photo Submissions:

1. Camera - Any Canon DSLR Camera
2. Time - please note the date restriction described in the challenge description
3. Size - Please visit Image Posting Rules.
4. Post-Processing - do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting - * ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.* Photo Name in the message subject line.* Camera model & lens used.* Notes -- post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
6. Commenting - No commenting during challenge. When the posting is closed and a winner has been declared, comments can be made in this thread.
7. Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
8. Have questions, PM me.
9. Have FUN!

One challenge every week, on the following schedule:

* New Topic - After winner is declared.
* Posting Starts - Right after topic is announced.
* Posting Ends -7am April 30th, 2013 Pacific Daylight Time
* Winner from this competition decides the theme of the next one (and judges it for a winner) after this competition is closed.

Congrats Maureen! I agree with Teekay, this one had a good number of posts here...

On a side note could anyone please do a quick critique of my photo here? Thanks...
