Took my plasma ball or whatever it's called and cut out a peace sign out of regular old paper. Taken in complete darkness. My cutting job is not great, but the concept was important and the little impurities could always be thought as metaphorical : ). Hope you enjoy.

A little cloning to clean up...

This is a very very beautiful shot. I love the colors, and the light is very bright.

Me too! Mine actually got a 4.9, despite a metaphorical rather than literal interpretation of the topic. It's definitely a "groovy" photo.

Since you have that solid black area to help make selections, you can have a lot of fun with this image, for example pasting someone's face into the plasma ball and fading it back to look ghostly or projected.

I'm guessing your peace sign will do the best of any (of the few) ever entered here.

Nice concept! One gripe though... since this challenge is in advanced editing, if I were you I would have used the chance and cloned out what seems to be white tape on the end of the two bars there..

I'm guessing you might take a hit from the digital manipulations in the windows challenge this week. This has a bit of a "digitally created" feel. Disgarding that, its an OK shot, the colors are nice, but the attention is really drawn by the background, and the sillouette is kind of more of a distraction. But not a bad effort or idea.
