Miami Photo Fakeout: The Townhouse gets by with a little help from its photo-editor friends

Well, we can think of one person in this great country that deserved yesterday's holiday -- it seems like someone certainly labored long and hard in Photoshop to produce the image on the left.

Behold: a beautiful example of the wonders of Photoshop, as displayed in these two images of the rooftop lounge at The Townhouse Hotel in Miami. On the left, take in the photo from the hotel's website: pretty ethereal light in the gazebo; the building-less skyline; the furniture that appears inviting and vibrant and sleek.

And on the right...reality. Considerably less glow-y, no?

Update: Since we published this Photo Fakeout, the hotel has been renovated. We have updated our review and photos accordingly.
