    Alright I guess I'm up. For the next 2 months we'll be doing the theme Festive. This would included special occasions like birthdays, weddings, holidays like Hanukkah, Christmas and Islamic New Year. Have fun!

    What a coincidence. In Malaysia this Friday, the Indians will be celebrating their Diwali and next Wednesday it's our turn to celebrate Eid for the Haj pilgrimage in Mecca. I may have an idea or two for this :smile:

    Hmmmm......this thread is relative to my interests.

    Festive is fitting considering the huge Giants win on the road, San Francisco last night was RIDICULOUS, my best friend lives there. I could tell where they were but could not see streets or cars just lots and lot and lot of people, and lots of champagne.

    Bumping this back up to the top. There is about 2.5 weeks left for submission for the Festive theme. If you have anything please post.

    Thanks! Brian

    Question, does the submission have to be before the end of December or can the shot date be in the timeline but supposed I don't get it developed until January, I'm flat broke and can't really process any 35mm right now.

    Sorry but all submissions have to be done by the end of December. I'll select the winner then.

    Just want to thank everyone for entering pictures for the "festive" submissions. I liked them all.

    Thanks
    barbara ann for the dancer and the tea for two. Both are great.
    nsouto for the xmas aliens I love the the shapes and colors of the lights
    MattKing for the very festive D6.
    mooseontheloose for the great colors and reflections of the balloons
    sly for the great picture of china, I love the lighting and I bet it was tasty. I also love the pictures of little miss attitude. Reminds me of my kids.
    Bertus for the very contrasty festive balls
    hpulley for the great pictures of his family.

    I had a tough time deciding a winner for this one as I liked them all. I think my favorite is the Festive ball by Bertus. I really like the abstract look of this and I really like the contrast of the picture. Congratulations, you get to select the topic for March and April MSA.

    Brian
