I guess I'm not seeing it?I guess we don’t have a discussion for this topic yet, and we’ve all seen some badly shopped photos. So I’ll begin.
This is a news photo from last night’s SNF game. I don’t know for a fact that this was shopped, but it looks off to me. If you notice the same thing I did, it probably is.

It’s the area where the football, in sharp focus, meets the helmet of RB Nick Chubb, who is blurred in the foreground. To my eyes there’s no blur where they intersect.
I would expect to see a blur where the curvature of the helmet is.
That is actually just a shallow depth of field, common with an expensive zoom lens. For example, let's just say the photographer is using an aperture of f/2.8 and zoomed in from 30 or 50 yards away while keeping focus on the quarterback, everything else in front or behind him will be out of that depth of field and naturally blur. Also number 24 is farther away from the photographer than number 71 or you would see the same amount of blur on both sides.
It’s probably Trump being Trump and having a hard time focusing. He does have that weird stance, like he’s strapped to a dolly or something.
If you mean that yellow in the second photo, that’s my highlighter where I thought the photo looked retouched. I probably should have included an arrow there too.There's a lot of stuff that looks weird to me there. No one else has a yellow strip on their helm. Sometimes with a high degree of motion blur, you get that semi-transparent effect naturally, which is what you're seeing there.
The quarterback is in focus. With a short depth of field, wouldn’t the foreground person be blurry?
I always attributed it to him being a sociopath who can only mimic feelings of warmth, not actually experience them.Possibly...... Depending upon where he is on the spectrum and the severity of specific elements of the condition, he could indeed not really understand what is and what is not socially pleasing when smiling and/or grinning....
