    Don't know about a "happy," but it does make me feel good! :) Nice abstract.

    Right on with the target response. I think I like the thumbnail better than the large view but it's still one of my favourites.

    Honestly I took quite a number of photos for this challenge and then looked through them to see if I responded emotionally to any of the candidates. I eliminated a lot this way. Then I chose this subject. The colours are essentially what was there. I then re-shot the subject in various ways and chose again. A little post production and here we are.

    I think this is an uplifting image, but I'm not quite sure why. Since you were aiming for a positive emotional response, I'm curious to know what you included/deleted in the photo to get that effect. ie. do certain colours or shades elicit that response?

    You happened to pick some of my favorite colors! Perfect for the theme in my opinion.

    This appealed in the thumbnail but lost it in the full version

    Love it. One of the few honest to God abstracts. Love the punch of color/focal point in the upper left. Great light and contrast. Has a metallic feel, but also feels like it could be an underwater shot looking up toward the surface. Regardless, enjoyable and easy to get lost in. One of my top picks.

    It is my stained glass window viewed through the textured glass of the front door.

    This entry gives me the feeling of post-happiness. For instance, like the winding down after a big event. (Perhaps because the subject reminds me of a deflating mylar balloon.) In my favs!

    looks like water with reflections and it would be good for a large wall

    This is pretty. It makes me think of shower doors but with color. Cool abstract.

    Not happy with the title but I do feel the photo is definitely in the top half of the entries - and in my favourites.
