OK, I'm trying to upgrade my user status of Elements from "beginner" to "slightly above average beginner." (lol) I'd like to know if anyone can tell me which part of this pic is fake and how do you know it's fake. I know everyone here has an eye for pics so the feedback will be greatly appreciated. :)

The lady is real. They threw quite a bit. My daughter has a bag full of stuffed animals.

I was wondering if the black hand closest to the left is fake?

Nope, that's real too.

I say the sky has been modified. I see areas that appear to have been painted in with a solid color.

I am wondering about some of the foreground (people/arms)

Ding ding ding....at least it wasn't spotted on the first try. LOL. In which part of the sky was it noticeable?

The flowers on the float look fake to me.:p



Nah, all kidding aside... I'm on a crappy monitor at work and can't see that much detail. There does appear to be some cloning artifact around the telephone pole/transformer on the far right side of the image.

Good catch Byron

I guess I shouldn't be trying this on a laptop screen..the whole sky looks the same colour to me.:D

Gee, I'm too late. My first guess was the people are added.

It exists therefore it's real. Since we all can see it ALL, it therefore is all real! :):):) Harvey

I'm claiming the whole picture is a fake. Having been to many Mardi Gras parades when I was younger, the picture is too clear. You try taking a picture while holding a camera in one hand, a Hurricane drink in the other while being pushed and shoved by 100 people trying to grab $0.06 worth of plastic beads...hum, maybe that was just me.

He doesn't have any shadows coming from the left as do the other people in the picture.

Ward too funny. I think I remember that from Mardi Gras, well as much as I can remember.
Good job of adding to the original. Now its a new original! And you've certainly passed beginner.
