This was a plastic Valentine's Heart that came with M&Ms in it. I took the ice drawer out of our freezer and arranged the heart among the cubes to try and hide the metal coil.

Post-processing in PSP: used the Color Balance/Fade Correction filter; selective cloning to remove highlights and small imperfections; also used the Clarify filter and Soft Focus; ran the photo through NI; resized for the Challenge

I can't figure out exactly why I like this one as much as I do - sorry I have nothing helpful to say except that it really works for me!
