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