    Get rid of the rainbow (rainbow?), and make the blocks so you can read them. Then you have a photo.

      I agree. It’s a cute idea. Not executed well, technically speaking. Also, I’m not sure why they went a tarted it up like that with that stupid rainbow ring thing. It’s a shame. Lots of potential there.

    When a man and a woman want to have a baby they make special offerings to the magic rainbow portal. Saves all this messing about with sex. Except they might get a girl called Paul now…..

    The two sacrifices are nearing complete blurriness! The ritual for summoning the giant baby, Paul, is almost complete! Yes! Yesss!!!

    More poorly executed whimsy to baffle the properly-adjusted human eye.

    I do believe this was taken by an Alien #1, the Rainbow portal, #2 the giant pink UFO parked behind them and #3 an unborn baby with feet that big?!….Yep, Aliens!

    I’m confused… is Paul the dude in the background? or the name of the unborn baby that she is going to have? Plus the rainbow circle? really? I just don’t get it.

    So is Paul going to be born gay or something? Can they test that now a days? This could have been a better photo a)without the Gay Pride rainbow and b)with better composition. Everything is pretty much in the center. And what’s that thing behind the parents? Location, location, location!!

      I remember reading an article (this was back in the early 2000s) about the advancement of “designer baby” technology. They were apparently trying to find a way to scan and program fetuses for hetero- or homosexuality, so that you could choose to have a straight or gay child.

    Dear Santa, I’ve been a good girl. Please bring me a new bucket and a gallon of eyebleach for Xmas. And a b/w conversion filter for my laptop screen so I’m not blinded by gaudy rainbows.

    Is that the Mother Ship in the background or a giant red clam?

    There is definitely a lot wrong with this photo. But for those poking fun at the idea of a rainbow being included, you should know that often babies born after a pregnancy or infant loss are called “rainbow babies.” My guess is that that is what the couple wanted to convey here. The execution is unfortunate, but perhaps we can step back from making jokes about the child’s sexuality.

      oh. I guess that explains why it looks more like they’re commemorating their dead son Paul than a baby-bump photo. Still think the rainbow is tacky, though. If they really wanted the effect, the fauxtog could have softened the colors a little bit. Paul deserved better.

      Oh well, at least there’s no spot-coloring.

  19. WOAH! THAT’S A CIRCLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY! YEAH! OMG! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN! IT’S SO BRIGHT! SO VIVID!
    CIRCLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE FIELD!

    In case you didn;t get the refrence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MX0D4oZwCsA

    But seriously … let’s ignore the tacky rainbow effect … no one else notice that it’s SUPER over exposed and over saturated?

    I have no clue how any of you were able to decipher the name on the blocks! It’s so overexposed, it’s hard to see even the first letter! I think Rainbow Brite took a saturated shit on this photo

    Those are the shoes of a two or three year old. The question is, why isn’t he in the picture?

    Ugh, that rainbow circle is on my photoshop elements, it annoys me. I can’t find a use for it ( I only edit my own photos, I’m not a photographer xP), but I can tell you it doesn’t belong on “professional” photographs lol.

      you could volunteer to print fliers for your local LGBT Pride festival, that’s… about the only use I can think of for the rainbow effect.

    This image does not work at all. Focus should be on the shoes not the rainbow.
