How to identify hollow circles in a picture?

Assume the circles have different colors, different sizes, are having different background color, may have shadow.

The only thing guaranteed is no circle overlap other circle.

I need to find the center of each circle. How I should approach the question??

The first step, assuming you want help from us, is to post your image
somewhere - your favorite free image hosting web site, such as
tinypic.com. Other than that all I can guess is that you might want
to try color segmentation or hough transform, followed by labeling and
regionprops.
