Thanks to all for a wonderful bunch of celebrations :-) Tough to choose the best!

Volvorules - Life is always a celebration and your touching photo certainly drives home that point.
Maureen - Love the bubbly group photo. Wedding celebrations are always the best...a new beginning for a loving couple.
Northants Nin - Wonderful old cars...a photo to celebrate a time long past when life was simpler and more elegant!
teekay - Street fests are such fun. A celebration that brings fun and excitement to all as does your photo!
Marie - A wonderful photo and composition of life. I love the B&W conversion!

I wish I could pick all five but that's not the judges job...so here are the top three:

#3 - Volvorules - The celebration of life
#2 - Maureen - Bubbly celebration of a major life event
#1 - Marie - Celebration of Memories -- Love the composition and B&W - so much character is reflected in your subjects face

So - on to you Marie for the next contest! Again many thanks to this week's players for their marvelous entries :-)

Thanks Marie...our three wonderful kids threw us an amazing party :-) And as a special treat my very dear POTN friend Suzie was our official photographer :D My wife of 50 years is a very special lady to put up with me over all these years...she even serves as my "assistant" when I am shooting a wedding or other event. Here is a photo of Elaine and I at our "Celebration" on this past Sunday...and one with our three kids :-)

Congrats to Marie & Rob; I sighed a big relief when I saw that I didn't win because I had forgotten I would be out of town this next week & not able to host so I am very glad Marie took top honors. Thanks for 2nd Place :)

Jim, what a wonderful celebration for you & Elaine. Hearty Congrats!

Skip & I are off to Maui in a few hours & will be back in a week. I will catch up with the next challenge after that.

Good show, Marie, Maureen and Volvorules! Fine celebrations all.

I really resonated to Northants old cars. I have attended the vintage race weekends at Watkins Glen two summer weekends and it's a real treat to see (and hear) these beautiful old machines out stretching their legs. I celebrate with you.

Thank you for the challenge, hadn't got many celebration photos in the bank, but love car meetings that celebrate old cars and bikes. My photo was taken at a Bently show at Silverstone.
