Playing In The Waves

…. At least she appears to be enjoying herself? However we’re pretty sure the Fauxtog could not have taken a more unflattering photo!

    I heard that Ariel got out of rehab. Jesus, what a rough road. Those anti-depressants can completely change a body’s composition.

        You’re an uptight cunt. If the girl was hot this photo wouldn’t be on here, it’s because she’s huge and the pose is so unflattering that this is here. Get over yourself.

        Twiggy – get over yourself, just because your massive insecurities lead you to need to sling childish insults in order to stroke your pathetic little ego doesn’t mean the rest of us want to read them. When you’ve finished puberty and are ready to act like an adult, try again.

        Calling an uptight cunt, an uptight cunt is because of my insecurities? Maybe we need to start a new page “You are not a psychologist.com”

    Why would anyone let the photo of themselves continue to exist?

      Uh, wouldn’t a good picture be flattering?

      The photographer could have done a lot to ensure that the model didn’t look weird, but s/he didn’t. Now it’s an unflattering, bad picture.

    Ya.. I would not be happy if that was a picture of me. She looks like she’s having fun, which is awesome, but the picture isn’t the most flattering thing in the world. I’d say that’s one to keep on your cell phone or something of you having a good time, but not publish…

    I am SO sorry to say this but all those comments on less-tasteful websites about “manning the harpoons” sprung straight into mind. Did the subject, who required a certain amount of care andcompassion in her photograph, really wantb to be depicted as a sea-creature, flailing about so indecorously? The photograpger’s intentions are highly suspect.

    If she’d waded out a little further it would have looked OK.

    There are other ways to splash water around and not look high doing it. But It all goes back to being the photographer’s fault for not capturing it different way or even thinking about it a little in the first place.

    Playing in the waves is one thing, but getting a surprise “goose” from Shamu is quite another!

    I don’t see anything wrong with it besides color cast. If the subject’s not concerned with people’s comments, and just wants some shots of her having a good time at the beach – mission accomplished.

    A happy snap nothing more, probably not something I would watermark.

    I am really confused by her right arm. It looks like her arm pit is like 6 inches down her arm… am I missing something, or does it looks extremely odd to anyone else?

    To me it looks like she’s about to take a piss in the water. Regardless if the exposure’s OK (but not great), when you pose someone in this way, looking down with shadows under the eyes, squatting to shorten and compress the body, shooting straight on… it’s going to look bad, off balance and unflattering no matter what you look like.

    The overall look of the photo isn’t entirely awful (the exposure, white balance yadda yadda). There is way worse. Yet, it has to be said: she reminds me of hovercat. Just kinda hovering over the water, head down, like it was taken in a series of action shots. Before or after could have been better than just some isolated girl floating over the top of the water. It’s not flattering, for anybody of any shape or size.

    Fun shot, maybe, but not one I’d put in my portfolio.

    I live in the same town as this photographer and have seen this photo on my newsfeed before. The photographer is actually a very good photographer, I think the client just wanted a weird request… Definitely not fauxtography, just an unfortunate shot…
