This is an amazing photograph I captured of somebody blowing bubbles. Their placement defied randomness on an astronomical scale by miraculously arranging themselves for a brief moment in the shape of a peace sign (wink)
Actually, the bubble cluster on the right side is genuine to the original photo - there was a stray bubble on the left side which I duplicated and arranged into the peace sign. I used some color correction to enhance the green of the grass and gamma alteration to make it appear more realistic. A slight Gaussian blur was added to a few bubbles for depth and a feeling of realism. All was done with Corel Photo-Paint.
The play-on-words title comes from Elvis Costello's song "Peace, Love and Understanding" I'm not fond of icons and their worship as much as the practical application of their meaning and/or intentions.
