What Do You Mean I've Been Photo Shopped

WHAT THE!!!.........WHO IS THIS??? WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'VE BEEN PHOTO SHOPPED??? How could that possibly be? I only wanted the picture cropped and framed! You can't really think that looks like me! When did I become seven feet tall? My eyes are brown, not Malachite green! You've made my arms longer than my legs! Why are my ears the color of Tangerine??? I like to smile but you've given me one that goes off my face left and right! And what's up with half of me looking like day, and the other half looking like night??? You've given me two feet so long I have to go to an intersection just to turn around! And I've never had hair down to my knees!!! You might as well have let it touch the ground! You've given me a superhero's upper body with a waistline the size of a pen! Oh, come on! Those legs look like two soda straws! This is one weird looking specimen!!! The camera was designed to reflect real life in pictures portraying life as it is! I don't take selfies every two seconds!!! What sort of madness is this? I am not a celebrity who has to be over concerned with a look! Please! Put everything back the way it was for my request you have grossly mistook! Whatever the world is coming to some things really need to be stopped! "You gave me a nose like a battleship anchor!!!" WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'VE BEEN PHOTO SHOPPED??? WTA-IV 5/11/2016

Very clever and very humorous. It's funny that most people in the "old days" actually thought film was meant to capture reality. I worked in the 1 hour photo business for many years. The three major film manufactures created there film to mirror what there main clientele wanted, Fuji film for the Asian market which leaned toward bigger then life color, Kodak for the North American market leaning toward more realistic color, and Agfa skin tones for the European market.

Thank you Casarah! It brings to mind the expression "Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear!" :-) Thank you very much!

This is a pleasant and entertaining poem, Walter...and very creative, I must say:) A couple of years ago a local vip was featured on a magazine...how people joked and laughed at her photo-shopped pictures...she was hardly recognizable!! // paul

Well Walter, ha, ha,ha. A story-telling funny rhyme. In this imagery, I picture muscular top on tiny waist, a two-sided photo with each facial half a different color the things they do with pictures these days! Man a 7. Enjoyed it. RP.

:-) :-) Funny thing is some forget that a pic was taken yesterday and in no way can anyone morph like that in 24 hours! :-) Not only is it anatomically impossible, it is straight out "deceitful!" Thank you Lewis and have a great day! :-)
