Photoshop: A pair of inverted layer masks on 2 curves layers highlight the yellow peep and darken the perimeter peeps. A small enhancement was made to the yellow peep's left eye (no such thing as a perfect peep). Some overall spotting and fills to some of the larger white areas with peep matter.

Could be the peep version of "I Robot" "I Peep" :P One of the best in the theme. Very original.

From all the pictures submited in this category this one stands out most. I think it's because of the light source. Nice shot.

wonderful shot, should've been in patterns, your eye flies to the yellow peep. Hope your lighttable wasn't covered wth pink goo afterwards! 8

Looks like an invasion force! The lighting from underneath gives it a bit of a creepy look. There's a slight tilt that rubs me wrong.

There's always one in the crowd.
(I'm referring of course to that guy, four back and fourth from the left with the squinty eyes and the silly smirk.)

I had an idea similar to this, but couldn't find enough peeps. I'm glad someone was able to. Nice shot.

that's a lot of peeps!

Very surreal from the entertaining lighting. Doesn't look like they're perfectly aligned but I think I prefer that to more orderly rows of Peeps. I also like that the lone Peep is the only one with the original shape AND color.

I bet the JustBorn company loves you for buying all these Peeps!
