I've picked holidays as this weeks challenge, partly as I'm away at the moment and secondly it gives everyone the chance to show off some of there holiday snaps. Whether it be the family enjoying themselves on the beach, or a picture of a temple/church/building which gave you the wow factor etc or even of an event or sport you travelled away to compete in or view, it's pretty much an open catergory and I look forward to seeing your images and you being part of POTN's 40th Speed Challenge!

Thanks for all of your photos and it was really hard to pick the top three in this one, and after a lot of thought and nail biting as I could not seperate the top two, here is my top three

1st Lunajen, Christmas eve night and Cocoa....
This is just a wonderful shot, it has everything within the shot to capture the moment and you can also see the laughter about to explode on everyones faces in the room, and what a picture that would have made.......... Very well done and I'm sure this picture will bring back the moment for many years to come

2nd Beau Hudspeth July, 4th, 2005
This is an amazing shot, and the quality of the capture of the explosions is second to none, and this is one of the best firework photos I have seen. Having tried on numerous occasions to get that "one great" shot I know how hard it is, and I'm sure all of us would like to know how you took this photo? Congratulations

3rd steve535 christmas fire
This picture brings back so many memories of my childhood when we always had an open fire at Christmas and the amount of times this happened and the chaos that ensued after trying to get rid of the smoke so the room didn't end up black with soot :) Great capture as I'm sure most of us would be thinking more about sorting out the problem than taking a picture of it..........

Congratulations to everyone else, I really liked all of your pictures, and sorry if you didn't get in the top three this time, but keep trying! :)

Over to you Jen for round #41

Wow - I am getting pretty tired of people entering contests who obviously have no desire/intent on hosting the next contest. If you are not going to have time when the current contest ends, then don't enter. The speed challenges in the G forum and the small camera forum are pretty consistent. This is disappointing!

I think that if the winner does not start a new contest within 48 hours of winning, the 2nd place winner should do the next contest. Then the 3rd... After that, the person who ran the contest in question should just start another one.
