    We used to play with marbles on hard-packed snow, so this really brings back memories. Congratulations on your win!

    Thanks everyone for all the votes! I'm flattered, as usual there were so many fantastic photos.
A few of you were curious about how this related to my childhood memories, well I never actually played any games with marbles however I always recall my sister and I having a big vinyl bag of marbles and forever trying to steal the ones with the best colours from each other. When I saw the challenge, that image and how I wanted to express it was an instant vision. Great challenge!
Thanks again.

    You certainly hit a chord with my childhood memories. The lighting lifts this out of the ordinary - well done.

    we had them. none of my friends knew how to play or just were not willing to play for keeps. but we always found other uses for them.
nice colorful shot. lighting and background works well.

    Love the composition, dof, and colors. To me and I'm sure many others in the group this was our nintendo and xbox. We would gather around in the sandlot and have our shoot outs. Thanks for the memory, nice job!

    A great stand-alone photo of marbles but I would have like to read/seen how they fitted in your childhood memories.

    Marbles were certainly a game that I grew up with. I love the treatment you have given them - great composition and wonderful lighting. TF for sure.

    Lovely photos of beautiful marbles. I wish you had told us your memory of them.

    Marbles played against the playground wall. The big one looking like a sixer [worth six of the smaller ones]
the background works with lots of colour in the foreground

    Beautiful capture. Nice background and colors. I was a marble playing fanatic when I was a child, so this image really hits home for me. My favorite!
