Pond Head

This is just creepy… and bad!

  1. dickie says:

    It was actually a decent image before the creativity was applied.


  2. Will says:

    hmm ok this is just an awful idea done really badly :s


  3. borss says:

    The funny thing is, that the original landscape pic. would be kinda cool without the face:D


  4. Ernie Ames says:

    What the HECK?!?
    Did this poor woman drown in the pond & the fauxtog is trying to memorialize her spirit in that water?


  5. Andreana says:

    HAHAHAHA. never mind the selection job around the head… the idea alone is terrifying.


  6. Rob says:

    The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. THAT is why I am your king!

      Listen, strange women lyin’ in ponds distributin’ swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

  8. AC says:

    They even failed to crop her head properly. Or is that supposed to be an outer glow? :|

    You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead— your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

    Nice autumn scene, very atmospheric…… WHY?
    Face is so fuzzy it’s not identifiable, it’s not attractive. It’s weird.


  11. EW says:

    I have seen that pond image before, maybe from deviant art. They ripped a good photo and added a face?WTF.


  12. BurninBiomass says:

    I get it, its Emily Pond… where it the Tardis?


  13. I’d bet the fauxtog didn’t actually take either of the two pictures.


  14. LCH says:

    love your site.. hate the photos you post LOL.. this is beyond stupid, creepy and I’d say poorly done but I can’t think of a way it could or would want to be done at all, let alone well!


  15. someone says:

    I have a feeling the original picture was taken by someone else and this was just bad photoshopping, just a guess based on the taste of the edit.



    Tineye results for that image :)


  17. Blast from the past says:

    Mary Jo Kopechne, is that you??


  18. Pelham says:

    The landscape is lovely , a very nicely done stock shot. The lady’s face, looking at the softness/b&w and huge hair, looks like it was scanned in from a photo dating back a few decades.

    Then, oh gawd help us, a fauxtog found that stock shot – AND the Warp tool in PS – and after scanning in the pic and selecting only her face, proceeded to warp it to *match* the planes of the water’s surface….*groan*


  19. Molly says:

    Why does this remind me of Teddy Kennedy?


  20. Roxanne says:

    What the actual fuck?


  21. Angela MacIsaac (@that_angela) says:

    Wow … so I’ll just steal this totally awesome photo from a real photographer and place this face on it.

    What in hell kind of thought process? Jesus Jumpin’ on a Pogostick Christ.


  22. robert says:

    That’s not a face.
    It’s an oil spillage in an otherwise lovely scene. This photo was taken, probably because the oil pattern resembled a face.


  23. H M Bascom says:

    There is not a word in the English language that can adequately express the awfulness of this combination copyright infringement/horrible cut-and-past monstrosity.


    • Wsroadrunner says:

      My thoughts exactly…. if someone did this to one of my photographs there would be a DMCA notice filed immediately with legal action prepared 27 hours later.


  24. CB says:

    omg was she drowned in the lake?


  25. murderator says:

    Is it me, or does the Lady of the Lake look sort of like John Travolta?


  26. Gal with a Camera says:

    Nice hairdo.


  27. spike says:

    Who’s the watery tart…er..moistened bint… um… I mean to say, who’s the unfortunate lady that has had her face associated with this steaming heap.


  28. Janet says:

    The homicidal undertones are freaky! Is the fauxtog sending a message to investigators that the lake is where he dumped the body?!


  29. Snappy says:

    Photog indeed ripped this off, and then ruined it with photoshop.


  30. justme says:

    Isn’t this one of the signs of the apocalypse?


  31. Crystal says:

    It looks like Professor Umbridge drowned in the the Black Lake .
