    My personal favourite photography is pictures of people. I like to capture who they are and something that is them. A genuine carefree smile is always unique and I think everyone has their own expression of Joy. It's one of the easiest things to put sunshine into someone else's day.

    -A smile happens in a flash but its memory can last for a lifetime.


    (rules copied from previous challenge thread)
    The rules are as follows/

    As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72-Hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge.

    For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up.

    At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a golden ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner.

    To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "Your Best Shot: Smiles Challenge."
    And finally I am not allowed to post pics for the purpose of participation in contest but I am going to post two pics as an examples.

    Let the smiles begin...

    I'm noticing a lot of awesome, female smiles from street portraits I've taken.

    I hope it's not coming off as "stalker-esque" or suspect in any way! ha ha
