    Just for fun.

    Can anyone spot a Bad Photoshop Edit in this song cover?

    If I told you, that's the answer, Tony.
    I will put it another way.
    What doesn't look normal perspective, in that image?

    I can't figure out what that is in the background. Is it water? Maybe fireworks?

    I don't think that the picture is big enough.

    Another clue. At least you are having a go.:)
    Nothing to do with the background.

    Nothing to do with the size of the Image, Cindy.

    So that only leaves Anne Murray or Glen Campbell.

    The white colour in front of her right arm is my guess. Probably cut from a light coloured background. (badly)
    The contrast in the girls hair doesn't look quite right either. But that maybe just me.

    I looked to see where the light is coming from. That looks right.

    I agree, Frank. Just all in all a bad edit. The whole image looks dead when you don't get all these aspects spot on..
    Takes many years to learn Photoshop. Frank is teaching me, but I am a slow learner.
    Thanks everyone for taking part.:thmbup:
    I have added a couple more that don't look right to me.

    The shadows could have been eliminated with a fill flash when the photo was taken.

    From the distance that image was taken in very bright sunlight, a flash wouldn't penetrate enough to remove ground shadows.
    Of course I could be wrong, Tony.
    Wonder what Frank thinks.
    Interesting point you brought up.:)
    I have two bridge cameras with strong flashes. I will try tomorrow from roughly the same distance and see if there is any penetration in bright sunlight.

    Now that's a good point. I hadn't thought about how bright the sun was and the amount of light to fill in that shadow. I often times use a fill flash when taking photos of people on a bright day. Fills in those shadows produced by a harsh sun. Sometimes a reflector board is all that's needed.

    The only time I have used Flash in bright sunlight, is when taking close up Macro shots of insects.

    I don't have enough experience with a camera to make a judgement on the shadows. But I do think it's been edited.
