Think These Are Photoshopped? Guess again

 I understand if you feel like it is hard to be amazed by anything you see on the internet these days, when you know for a fact that any teenager with a computer and a copy of Photoshop or other photo manipulation software can put together a fake photograph in a couple of minutes.
You are completely right! Unfortunately, this means there’s a bunch of jaw-dropping images that the internet declared “FAKE!” the moment they appeared. You need to be broad minded and always mind that real life is, sometimes, stranger than Photoshoped imagery and some of the most amazing, jaw-dropping of them are, in fact, real.

Breathtaking Underwater Photography

Humanity knows almost as little about the depths of the oceans as the depths of outer space. Earth’s oceans have fascinated humanity for millenia, resulting in a variety of myths from the Earth being flat with the oceans simply pouring off into space, the kraken and mermaids. Beyond the myths, however, lies an incredible variety of life and color.

Today we’ll take a closer look on what we can find under the clear blue waters of the oceans. And here’re some breathtaking underwater photos, captured by talented photographers. From Clownfish that look surprisingly like Nemo (see the picture above), to jellyfish, sharks and crabs, you’ll get a glimpse of some of the life that thrives just beneath the surface. [via 1x]
