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

  2. Juvenal

    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. Yep must of been very bright -.-

    • 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].

      • Shuldntuv used such an obvious white brush…

      • or “must’ve” been. same sound, but properly used.

      • ah yeah my bad, often make that mistake just because of the way i pronounce it in my head

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

  5. Michael

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

  6. 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

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

  8. 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

    The sun was out or they were ON the sun?

  12. Heather

    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.

    • 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

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

  14. BurninBiomass

    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

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

  16. wait, wut

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

  17. Just awful!

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

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

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