Fun with Photoshop, Part 1: DKNY

I'm not a fan of the current DKNY campaign. Despite the garish hue of the greens and pinks, these photographs seem oddly barren in texture, affect, life.

With a closer look, though, it gets even creepier. The models are fully accessorized with bags, hats, belts and shoes. The gloss on the bags indicates sun, the New York sidewalk behind attests street.

But where are the models' shadows?

Memo to DKNY: you can't fake the NY part.
