7 Must See Pictures That Haven't Been PhotoshoppedBy Damien on February 05, 2013 - 7:00 am |
Since Photoshop came along, we’ve
become increasingly skeptical of the pictures we see. And why
wouldn’t we be, when any kid with a computer can photoshop Rush
Limbaugh’s face onto Heidi Klum’s body (circa 1997 of course)—but
these pictures haven’t been touched by Photoshop at all.
See Through Laptop
In case you don't get it: he took a picture of what's behind his computer. Doesn't it make you want to try it right now?
This is a Real Thing
No Photoshop trickery is afoot here: this is what you get when you cross a zebra and a regular horse. It's called a Zebroid, which also happens to be the name of the special cream in my medicine cabinet.
Artsy But Good
Who would have guessed? Artsy photography CAN be good. This effect was achieved by having the girl lay down on a reflective surface, like black concrete covered in water. Please learn something from this, “photographers.” Taking a black and white picture of a road sign or a dead bird or something isn't even remotely as good as this.
Peter Pan Was Here
In this neat photo, the girl was jumping, not flying. If she could really fly, she'd be locked up in a government research facility with a variety of electrodes and whatnot stuck to her face. Free tip: if you can fly, don't tell anyone.
It's Not Actually Floating
This piece of “modern art” is found at Aqualand in Spain. Unlike most modern art, it's actually pretty cool: there's another pipe hidden in the stream of water, which pushes out water inside the big pipe, so that it looks like that's where it originated.
He's actually balancing upside down on his head at the beach (and in what appears to be whitey-tighties as well, classy). This is one of those skills that you have to work very hard to achieve but serve no practical purpose.
Look closer: it's actually two different girls. Pretty neat idea actually—the left side of the picture is a mirror, and the other side is glass, which is where the second girl is standing.
