The Sun Was Out

We like how nice the commenter is about trying to tell this fauxtog that this photo is horrible. Obviously the fauxtog missed the message.

  1. Tina says:

    The sun was out, and it was blinding his/her judgement.


  2. Juvenal says:

    It took me a minute to realise she was holding a child. At first I thought there was some sort of weird compositing mashup going on with her legs …


  3. Will says:

    Yep must of been very bright -.-


    • Kat says:

      I hate to be a stickler but it should read “must HAVE been” … there is no such thing as “must of been” … unless you’re mumbling in which case it still doesn’t make any sense [yes, it's one word, I know].


  4. Drew says:

    That’s not the sun… that’s the core of a nuclear blast in the background!!


  5. Michael says:

    A moment later, the family was vaporized by the nuclear blast…


  6. Gina says:

    Yeah, that “photoshopped” sun will get you every time… Also, the big sunspot on the guy is not adding anything… Should have gone right in the trash bin.


  7. Prevailing says:

    Well I guess if the couple didn’t pay for this there is no harm in it right? Hahaha


  8. LOLZ says:

    At least the baby knew enough to look away.


  9. Yes … the photoshop white soft baintbrush sun … I mean, the fauxtog even covered part of the bench!!!

    OMG!!!! There’s a baby in that picture! I hadn’t notice it!!! ROFL!


  10. Soon, the fauxtog will also learn about the crop tool.


  11. Annoyed says:

    The sun was out or they were ON the sun?


  12. Heather says:

    If you look closely.. it’s not the sun. This fauxtog tried to take the background out of the picture. Look above the guys shoulder. There was a clear background in this picture before they photoshopped it to death. Makes you wonder what was in the background that was so horrible they had to ruin the picture even more.


    • LOLZ says:

      I think we all pretty much figured that one out, Heather. I think the title is tongue in cheek since the hack actually had the gall to use the sun as an excuse.

      The sun was out, and as someone else said, there was apparently a nuclear core explosion simultaneously. What you are seeing is the fragments of things the blast hasn’t gotten to yet.


  13. Marten says:

    So that is what a Chucky doll looks like when it grows up.


  14. BurninBiomass says:

    Reminds me of the lighting from Close Encounters of the Third Kind , when the aliens were heading down the ramp with that blinding light behind them.


  15. Michelle says:

    I wish someone would leave their name in these comments so we can see what other amazing abilities this photographer has!


  16. wait, wut says:

    who needs shallow depth of field to get subject isolation when you have the white paintbrush in photoshop :D


  17. Lora says:

    Just awful!


  18. Kevin says:

    They won’t be smiling so much when they realise that the aliens have sucked up their trailer….!


  19. roger says:

    “Honey, where’s mah good tshirt? You know the Metal Mulisha one!? We have that family portrait today!”


  20. Snappy says:

    If you’re gonna go high-key, make sure you crop the photo badly and get a distracting bench in the background. Oh, make sure the background washout is badly edited in as well (I can see the crappy brushwork by the guy’s shoulder).


  21. Ann says:

    It was a sunny day. And some jerk dropped an atom bomb right in the middle of the shoot.
