Excluding cropping or tone adjustments, none of these images have been Photoshopped (as in composed from many images or morphed or painted over). They look like fakes but their authors say they are very real. I look at them and I can believe them.
Hmmmm. I mean. Kind of. What do you think?
Some of the photos are just well staged. Some others are good optical illusions. There are a couple that are supposed to be just (very) happy coincidences, like the golf ball above. Or is it?
But I’ve to admit that some are hard to believe. [Unreality Mag]
Intentional fall about to happen (painful) or man pasted on top with fake shadow (no hip broken)?
Car painted over in real life (expensive and complicated) or painted later in Photoshop (so easy and cheap)?
Staged in the sea while they waited for a wave and the surfer to be in the right position (patience!) or two photos merged in one (effortless)?
Staged in a stadium (lots of hard coordination here) or composed and sightly morphed later in Photoshop (lots easier?
Happy coincidence to get this surreal reflection (magic!) or some amateurish layer work (not very believable)?
Do you have more examples of real photos that totally look like fakes (or the contrary)? Post them in the comments.
