The 29th round of the Photography Scavenger Hunt brought some interesting limitations: no Photoshop. None. Every image must be straight out of camera.

I had a Deadpool figure that came with his hand in that pose, so it was simply a matter of setting him up in front of a background and shooting him.
This is the straight from camera shot I submitted to the hunt:
