Photoshop Contest: What Else Is Hiding in This Cryptic Lincoln Pic?

Illustration for article titled Photoshop Contest: What Else Is Hiding in This Cryptic Lincoln Pic?

As you may or may not have heard, a University of North Carolina professor claims to have found a major mistake in Lincoln history. Some blurry, sepia-skinned dude in the photo who we'd believed was Lincoln was actually not! As this Smithsonian Magazine article details, it's more likely that Lincoln is this other blurry, sepia-skinned due.


The problem, of course, being that because these photos are so old, there's really only so much blowing up we can do before we start entering Seurat territory. So really, who know what else might be hiding in that mass of soldiers. It could be anything! For this week's Photoshop contest, we want you to do whatever's within your means to show us the most bizarre, hilarious, clever, and genius things that might be hiding in this classic American shot. You can find the original Smithsonian Magazine article for context here.

Submissions will be graded on originality, technique, and laffs; you'll have from now until the end of the day this coming Tuesday, October 8 to submit your entry in Kinja down below. We'll announce the lucky winners that Wednesday. Until then, best of luck to you all.
