# Seams?
Has Gordon Brown been 'shopped into this image?

(Original here if you'd like to take a closer look.)

# Nah.
He's just two-dimensional.

# heh
So the 'seam' is actually light bouncing off the edge of two-ply?

# are you serious?
the "seam" is the boy's shirt

I wonder about those two red arrows though...


*wonders*

# you have a good eye, sir
I put it down to the reflective qualities of the British tan, myself.

# How is that the boy's shirt?
Does he have a step in his neck?

# it's the sleeve
showing up from under the jacket, like the girl in the front.

Game over man. Game over!

# The image abounds with unlikely-looking sharp edges, not just on Gordon.
It's probably just been put through a slight sharpen filter.

glued to his jacket that I find most suspicious.

# Most photographers do sharpen their images slightly.

The flat, bunched up effects here are what you'd get with a telephoto lens too.

It's the elements in front of Gordon you'd check for shoppery, and I can't see any signs there.

# and some digital SLR cameras are affected by oversharpening
and what wheely siad about the people in front.

I think he has - the lighting on his face is really flat compared to the kids. And those harsh lines don't look to convincing either...

I think it might just be unnatural lighting coupled with over-zealous Sharpening.
