Friday Consumerist Flickr Pool Finds

Here are five special photos that readers added to the The Consumerist Flickr Pool this week, chosen because they’re both neat and could possibly be used in a Consumerist post. Our Flickr Pool is the place where Consumerist readers go and upload photos for possible use in future Consumerist posts. Just be a registered Flickr user, go here, and click “Join Group?” up on the top right, and start hitting “send to group” on your individual photos you want to add to the pool.

    Maybe it’s just my eyes but there looks to be a lot of photoshop involved in that first photo. I don’t much care for that. My choice is the lemonade one.

    Slim Pickins this week huh?

    I agree. I don’t think it counts if you digitally alter images. That’s not photography.

    @RhymePhile: @mopar_man: Does off camera lighting mean anything to you? How about color balance?

    It certainly COULD have been photoshopped, but this photo could have also easily been made with 1 or 2 small strobes and a photographer with a brain (those are more rare than you’d think, actually)

    @lpranal: Thanks for the praise. I did photoshop it, but only to adjust the tone and remove background distractions.
    @mopar_man: @RhymePhile: As for you – the girl herself is basically unphotoshopped and the only reason it looks so unusual that is a photo taken outside during the day but a strobe is used to overpower the sun to make the girl stand out from the bright background.

    I understand all that thanks. When the Flickr page has no additional information or sizes for the picture and it LOOKS fake, that makes me suspicious.

    Did the people in that last photo just pull a freaky friday switcheroo and this is the reaction shot?

    That first picture is great! I’d hate to see the story that would need it as an illustration.
