SunExpress: Let’s fly away

A couple’s magical moment together is ruined when an aircraft careens into a nearby mountain range.

Photoshop Disasters

Those vacation memories are best remembered a little doctoring. You can get away with pasting the photogenic pair in the foreground, but piling on the flying metaphor with an actual aircraft is when the line was crossed.

Thanks Frank. The original was found on the home page of SunExpress.

    Correct me if I am wrong (and we both know you will), but it looks like the only parts of her that are touching him are the hands and the insides of her thighs, near her knees. Wouldn’t that mean that she is squeezing him with her thighs? She must have strong legs and he must be in a bit of pain for them to hold that pose.
    So is she actually standing on something and just crouching behind him, or is she photoshopped onto his back (if it is the latter, they did a good job)

      don’t you see her outspread arms, obviously she has lift like an airplane. You can tell by her hair the speed she is going at, definitely close to take off.

        Thanks. I knew someone would find the error in my ways. Perhaps you know enough about aerodynamics to answer this question – My arms are bigger than hers, giving my “wings” more surface area. Would that make it easier for me to get airborn? Does it matter that by “bigger” I really mean “flabbier”?

          How long is your hair? You’ll also need a partner larger and more attractive than yourself to carry you so you can reach top speed. Use the image above as an example. I’m not an expert, but the retarded facial expression might be optional.

    How is this a photoshop disaster? I don’t get it. The tease says only art direction disaster.

    do you thing like me. On the beach, I have the impression that the sand under the people is white while the rest is darker As if the photoshoper took the persons from an other beach ( whiter ) and pasted on this one.

      I think you may well be right. It seems hardly worth doing sing the “people” are just little blobs of color.

    The plane is closer than the mountains, so there’s no risk of collision. The real problems with the plane are: it’s too in-focus compared to other objects at the same distance, and it ruins the ad because who wants to visit a beach that is obviously at the end of an airport runway?

    Where exactly would an airplane fit near an island beach. BTW, what are the people standing on?

    I’ve just seen “Alive”, so…
