My morning routine when it snows…
now that’s what photography should be about… not a black and white picture of someone’s shoes
The top picture is full of M&M’s. They’re bule, red, orange, green, yellow, and brown.
But in the bottom picture we clearly see there’s white, pink, and even purple candies in the bowl.
The bottom picture is of gumballs! This concludes that the bottom picture is not taken with that camera at all. I’d even go as far to say that it was edited in photoshop with a filter!
Yes the above image and the below image are not the same photograph being taken. This is rather obvious.
BUT Mr. Wright there is one thing you overlooked. Examine the droplets on the bottom image. None of them are from the same angle. This is a natural occurance when looking through water droplets.
Is it not possible that the photographer took the second image first?
Would it not be more probable that when asked HOW it was taken he/she took the above image of their setup Using M&Ms, something much more common in a household rather than many gumballs, something they may have just bought for the original photo?
So to claim it was not taken with the same camera is indeed a long shot Mr. Wright.
Thank you for your time.
Really Edgeworth, is that you’re argument.
Aren’t you overlooking the fact that there are no pink M&Ms. This proves undeniably that these are not, in fact M&Ms, but some other kind of candy.
And one other thing, I find it highly improbable that not one piece of candy is facing so the M logo is on the candy.
So in conclusion, there is no way these are possibly M&Ms.
hey mister I think you’re confuuuuuuused. Edgeworth agreed that they weren’t M&M’s. He was just refuting that there is a possibility there wasnt any photoshop used and that the above image was only depicting the method used in the bottom image.
I think someone might be getting a little senile hehehe
Everyone seems to be walking around the accusations by examining whether they are or aren’t M&Ms. That is not what’s important. What we should be looking at is instead, the so-called droplets, compared to the background image.
The angles within the droplets do not realistically coincide with one another! As well, I don’t spend much time staring at drops of water, but I can surely say I’ve never seen such clarity in any water droplet. Also, as in the former picture, there is an obvious fogging on the glass, surely caused by whichever process was used to spray the water. Where is the fog?
On top of all that, the drops are amazingly tiny compared to the anonymous-candy. One could argue the sheet is further away than in the ‘example’ pic, but the blurring of the candies definitely objects to that. We could also try to assume that the spray method used in the ‘original’ photo caused much tinier water spots, but are we to believe that the photographer was so careless that they couldn’t recreate the correct droplet size in the ‘example’? Surely, they should have been able to cause at least a closer resemblance.
Sure seems like they went out of their way to showcase the methodology of how the photograph was taken, yet neglected to go far enough to ensure it could be a like-comparison?
Actually, Mr. Godot!!
Well, according to the properties of light and the way it’s refracted…
If you mirror it the right way, they line up just fine!
Aah… these M&M’s droplets
So colourful… reminds me of the days of my youth!
the red ones remind me of my hemorroids… *cough*
I have found some new evidence though the original image source suggesting this second image has been tampered with!
This image clearly shows candies that correspond to the colours commonly found in M & M s… The edge of the bowl is visible, as are some ‘M’ symbols, if you look closely.
This suggests the second image in the original is perhaps just a fabrication based off of the second.
It is clearly a fraud!
You shouldn’t jump the “fraud” gun just yet, Wright. If your source is really the corresponding photo to the first, then the “gumball” picture in question might not be at fault. To put it bluntly, it might just be a copycat.
To put it another way, this could just be a case of a mistaken and mismatched photoset..
With all the evidence provided, I think it’s safe to assume this case could be solved: The candies in the second photograph are not M&Ms, but the photo itself was not exactly tampered with. It was just a completely separate photo of separate candies, possibly just misplaced in this set by the original poster, who was completely unaware of the mismatch!
First, let’s establish the facts. We all agree that the candies features in the second picture are not in fact M&M’s, and not because of the color variation since M&M’s can actually come in varying colors, including white, pink, and purple:
But we are not here to discuss what candy was used since it is irrelevant to what we really want to know:
Was the picture photoshopped?
Due to the images changing since the case was first presented, I will demonstrate using a stock photo of gumballs and about 10 minutes of my time.
Now let’s do a comparison of all the images:
Of course if you spend more than 10 minutes I’m sure you can produce something of much better quality.
And just to make sure we tie up loose ends, here is an image mimicking the technique that is claimed to be used, as you can see, I failed to reproduce anything close to any of the above images.
I leave the verdict to Your Honor.

My Halloween costume.
I don’t usually upload pictures of myself, but I simply had to show you guys my costume. I took an old wedding dress, dyed and ripped it, painted it with acrylics and hand made my sleeves out of a black pantyhose. I also hand made the veil and did my own face painting.
My friends had a Halloween party out in the mountains today so we took a bunch of pictures.
Decided to draw my Maplestory character in the Maplestory style.
I’m surprised my hand still remembers how to draw after not doing anything art related these past two months.
Grow up? Nope!
Don’t you hate it when people tell you to grow up or act your age? It’s not like we’re elderly people, and even if we were there is nothing wrong with being FUN.

…and if the dull pain in the back of my head is any indication, I may not remember anything for a while.
This is my newest project. It’s something I wanted to do ages ago and kept putting off… Obviously I’m very far ahead in the actual game, so the journal has a bit of catching up to do.
WIP of some Phantom Fanart (Maplestory)~
Haven’t had the time to draw lately, I did manage to finish ME3:EC, so I’m trying to find the time to do some post ending stuff.
