    Default A Great Picture

    Whether this is Photoshopped or not, I think this is a great.
    And I thought it was worth sharing.

    I’m a bit old school. I like the idea, but knowing if it’s been photoshopped or not makes all the difference to me in terms of it’s overall greatness.

    While I would want to see a bit of a higher resolution photo, I do believe I can see the lower part of the moon in front of the bottom beak. One can also see some greenish brown artifacts across the bird's back.

    I imagine the original composition (assuming it's been manipulated) would be better. That said, I have seen photos wherein great care has been carried out to accomplish the same effect naturally (i.e., not manipulated) but most all I have seen involved staging with say a human hand where the back object is seen between two fingers, etc.

    Egg has scientifically proven the photo to be real. There can be no doubt in anyone's mind now.

    Although sticking the moon between fingers etc. is a old as holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, we do tend to dismiss things as 'shopped' as being inferior. Even the hastily jammed together meme has me nodding in appreciation. Someone thought of it, created it, and went to the trouble of uploading it to whatever platform. So the photo isn't real...admire the creativity and effort, however slight.

    10/10 to whoever made the gif.
