Farked!

This photo, after getting Farked over the weekend, is now fodder for a Photoshop contest. Check out the results.

Illusion

I believe the illusion of floating comes from the shadow in the foreground. The eye interprets the shadow as coming from Mr. Rodrigues, and since there's space between him and the shadow it looks like he's floating. Try scrolling the shadow off the bottom of the screen when you look at the photo and you'll see that the illusion goes away.

Freaky

What a weird illusion. At first glance it appeared that all three people were floating in the air.
