    Some of those must be photoshopped. Particularly #49.

    Then you'll probably love this one, not from the same collection, but still in the same spirit: http://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.ne...25920094_n.jpg

    Yeah, some of them definitely look like Photoshop jobs. Here are some I'm particularly suspicious of: #25; there's a dedicated function for that in Illustrator and Inkscape. #34; the sun is coming from the right for the girl in the back but the left for the girl in the front. #44 is almost certainly a Photoshop job, and not a particularly good one. The cloud is one long edge without depth above and below, and a setting sun isn't angled with that curvature.

    Pretty much any of those photos could have been Photoshopped, but those are the ones I'm confident about.

    #29 looks faked to me. Where's the plane? Some part of it should be visible behind the eagle, no?

    The squirrel one looks real to me because the squirrel is out of focus while the people in the background are not. That suggests to me that the squirrel just popped up while the photographer was shooting.

    I read about this photo when it came out. One of the couple hit the self-timer and ran to join the other to have a photo together. The squirrel came into frame and popped up it's head in front of the camera and they started laughing and right at that time the self-timer went off and this photo was the result.

    I assumed it was a rising moon.

    A rising moon wouldn't have that curvature or angle.

    I'm no scientist, but curious, so, why not?

    I don't think #44 is a setting sun or rising moon. Well, at least not JUST. It looks to me to be an eclipse of some sort. Most likely a solar eclipse and a partial one, which leaves the odd shape. I think that picture is legit, actually.

    Those trails linger for a while after planes/rockets/whatever.

    An eclipse doesn't have that curvature either. And the cloud edges alone make it highly suspicious.

    I blew it up on my computer to see more detail. I'm somewhat of an expert in Photoshop, and this looks 99% like a Photoshop job. Okay, not 99%, but over 90%.

    about half of them look photoshopped, but the original photobomb one (squirrel) is just legend
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
