Everyone wants to believe their own eyes, but what you don't see can often make all the difference. Photoshopping an image might be the most common way to change a picture's narrative, but simple cropping is a low-tech alternative that can be just as effective.

This technique works because our minds always strive to understand what's happening around us. When we only see a partial image, we instinctively try and guess what might be outside of the frame. Think that these pictures are dirty? Blame your own mind, not us!

Do you have any funny cropped images that give the wrong impression? Post them below, or vote on your favorite!

That could also be the camera's depth of field playing with the size of the subjects. Where's the context for the edited photo? While I don't know the photo's history, something this serious should come with background sources, not just a photo of edited photos trying to show how doctoring a photo changes the perception (see the flaw?). This also raises questions like how much can the photographer edit (every Photograph, especially in the digital photography, is edited either by the camera's firmware or the application the photographer imports it to, without the average photographer aware of it). Here's an excellent series on doctored photos in journalism, from changing contrast, to Photoshopping subjects in and out of the photos: http://www.alteredimagesbdc.org I don't think a photo like this, especially when lacking context, should be part of the more lighthearted submissions.

This is sad. Just for a picture? I feel bad for the guy holding the horses. But I guess he got paid to do it.
