    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.

    As it's a competition, can you leave the comments until after it's closed?

    See rule 2 in first post.

    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.

    Because when you're two years old, enjoying life is about things like being able to hold two glow sticks at the same time.

    BBQ fun

    I don't usually photograph people so a tough theme for me. Then my works decided to have a BBQ.

    We were walking down a riverside path in Switzerland in 2008 and came across this group obviously having a lot of fun - a moment in time where they were all alive.

    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
    Winners:
    Third place: jkramerbob
    Second place: Ish
