The original photo shows a lot of love padlocks. A love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence or gate to symbolize their love.
The photo was taken in September 2012. Postprocessing with GIMP: The saturation of the (about 400 !!) partly different colored padlocks was slightly increased and after that the final step was realized. Each color of a padlock was analyzed and a uniform colored rectangle (same color as the padlock but of larger size) was created. The layout in the frame happened by accident, that's why the rectangles are partly overlapping and the overlapping parts created new different colors. Seems to be a bit complicated, but the result compensates for the effort. All in all a rather unusual abstract image never seen this way before.
