Eyecandy Monday

Beware - owchies!


This picture was sent to me by a friend who "accidentally" found it on someone else's PC.
You can't trust anyone these days, can you?

Talk about your "happy accidents."

Awesome photo.

There was some discussion as to whether it was photoshopped, but yes, great image regardless, I think.

Oo, I can't get down with the temporary piercings. All those corset ones squink me out too.

Needles... agh...

There's a fair amount of stuff I used to hide behind my fingers from when I came across it online, that now I view cheerfully, even seek out...

but I don't see myself getting desensitised to the needly stuff. This is a cool idea, but, gah, can't look!

interesting - angels play harps, right? hahahaha

Goodness! The lengths some people will go to for a good pluck.

And thanks for the sidebar slot, Janine. Honoured.

I really like the idea of piercings, myself - but only on other people! I had my ears done when I was a teenager but they went gunky and I let then heal up...

Jo said...

Don't get me wrong, I love the peircings, but, in places that naturally take piercings, and heal! Not all up and down your stomach, or back.... too nasty!

For what it's worth, I asked my daughter, who is a good photographer, artist and photo editor, and she doesn't believe it is photo shopped. She said:

I don't see any airbrushing or blending and the image is far too intricate to make it look the way it does if it were photoshopped. The way his fingers slightly pull on a string and the response from the tug on the body, the light shadow of the strings on both bodies as well as the way the strings are weaved would be incredibly difficult to manufacture something like that on the computer. The reflection of her skin onto the wood of the harp is also not easily produced and would likely be overlooked by a photoshopper.

Basically everything interacts with other elements of the image properly from lighting to object interaction. When something is spliced into an image there is always an element of "this doesn't belong" here because there's a seam where one image ends and the other begins. There are some creative ways to mask this seam but you can never remove it. From what I see here there are no seams on any of the elements.

Ooooh - thank you Craig (and your daughter)! Now we know. It must have taken a hell of a lot of setting up though - I bet her thighs were aching. Talk about suffering for Art!
