I don't want to be a party pooper or anything but we had a fairly similar contest not too long ago of Home Country History. It might be a bit too similar to that one. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/1654085/
I missed that contest. I can change the topic.

My first instinct was to do a creative/artistic topic and I have a few in mind, but those haven't gone over well so I thought mine would be nice light fun.

Yeah they've fallen a bit flat unfortunately haven't they. I've tried the same but haven't had a good response. Yours was a good idea but I'd hate for people not to enter because they'd already done one similar.

We had a bit of a language barrier to deal with, but what I could understand was about the Brazilian soccer team. I'd say he was enjoying life! :cool:

I normally like to convert street images to black and white, but I really like how lively the color is in this photograph.

Thanks for your submissions, there are a lot of amazing pictures. I knew after I saw the first few I was going to have a hard time judging this.

CharlieBrandt09: I love the location, these father-son memories can last a lifetime.

bwhli: Beautiful colors and the fireworks add just the right touch.

AlexH: The picture really shows the connection you made despite the language barrier. Was that at this year's world cup?

uvafan1: Great angle. The ride does enhance the image. I hope you enjoyed the concert.

DirtySocks85: You really captured his sense of wonder.

soulreaver99: Beautiful vacation shot. They are definitely enjoying life.

Ardmanz: Great group shot, looks like it was a fun weekend.

jkramerbob: That's a gorgeous dramatic shot. The boat turns a good picture into an amazing picture.

Indydenny: Total fun shot. It just makes you smile to see it.

Chappers: Kids really remind you how full of wonder the world can be.

Ish: You captured a lot of feeling in this shot and it is a great contrast with the one above it.

Apple fanboy: Nice summer BBQ picture.

dmrowley: Great job on the sky. I'm curious if the left corner is darker because it was shot with a wide angle lens and polarizing filter?

tannerpp: That picture makes me want to go rafting this weekend. Were they going over the rock or actually stuck on it?

Hughmac: That looks like a fun shot. Dogs are a blast.

bankshot: He's still at the age where that's cute.

Honorable mention: AlexH
Third place: jkramerbob
Second place: Ish
First place: CharlieBrandt09 :)
