Just so ridiculous. A sane person would have made use of an “undo” button after trying out this effect.

    A sane person never would have tried that effect in the first place.

    You have got to be kidding me…. stay away from the smudge tool

  3. It looks like the Northern Lights are coming out of her back…..

    What is up with the “both hands on the face” pose?

    • Wsroadrunner

      I think it’s a twist on the Home Alone shock… from being photographed by a fauxtographer

  5. WHUCK. The original was okay (albeit boring and predicable but okay for your standard yearbook senior shot; I mean, at least it’s in focus and exposed properly). Who in their right mind would try this? And then KEEP it?


    Was the backdrop wrinkled and they thought they’d just smear it all around so they would be called out as a fauxtographer?

    • *wouldn’t. Fingers typed faster than my proofreading skills.

  6. A photographer

    She’s holding her jaw on.

  7. For a moment I thought I was SO drunk I hadn’t even realized I was drunk already.

  8. A photographer

    … because the swirling rainbow vortex of death is sucking her in…

    Bad Acid trip? Ugh!

    Makes me sea sick, it’s like a bad acid trip!

    I am sure there were a few people that thought this was cool.

    • Canaduck

      Yeah, the fauxtographer and maybe the fauxtographer’s dog.

    If the poor girl didn’t have a toothache and be posed in a position that ensures lots of boobage, this could have been a nicely lit portrait.

    But noooooo….fauxtogs never know when to leave well enough alone. They just HAVE to trot out their awesome pp skillz.


  13. I think we’re all missing what’s really happening here…bad photo being flushed down the toilet.

  14. LOL…what the hell? Why? Do you really want to pay someone for your photos if this is what they think looks good? Honestly, it looks like they have a vision disorder, like all those paintings Monet did when he got cataracts.

  15. Gal with a camera

    Okay, at first glance, I seriously thought she was leaning on a urinal. LoL!

  16. WHAT.THE.FRAK?!?!

  17. Canaduck

    Squish your hands into the sides of your face, that always looks attractive.

    • Canaduck

      For the record that was aimed at the fauxtographer, not the poor, unsuspecting victim.

  18. Yuck! That’s the type of effect that my child finds “cool” when messing around with Photoshop.
