Viral Solar Eclipse Ring Proposal Photo

This amazing image has been going viral on the Internet, usually accompanied with the caption:

A man in Japan effectively used the solar eclipse to propose to his girlfriend.

Sadly — sorry to burst your bubble — it’s not an actual photograph, but a composite image created by combining three photographs with the iOS app Image Blender. Japanese website wacameapp has published a behind-the-scenes look at how the image was created.

    The eclipse image isn’t even behind his finger. Sigh, the gullibility of the Internet.

    Without using alien uber-HDR and focus stacking there’s no way the sky would be blue, hands in focus, etc. Maybe the hand is just several parsecs across and behind the sun.

    Well, still, it was a great idea
