The mystery of Martha’s wobbly arm: MAFS star sparks Photoshop rumours with her latest snap on holiday in Cairns – before locals warn her of a hidden danger in the picture
Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis is currently taking Cairns by storm while on holiday with her boyfriend Michael Brunelli.
But the 31-year-old makeup artist’s latest Instagram photo on Thursday raised eyebrows for two surprising reasons.
The first cause for concern was the location where the photo was taken, which locals warned her is a breeding ground for bats.

In the photo, Martha posed in a crop top, faded jeans and stilettos alongside ficus rubiginosa trees, more commonly known as the Port Jackson fig.
After uploading photo, a Cairns local commented: ‘Bats root in those trees’. Another person soon responded: ‘Exactly what I was just thinking’.
A third concerned fan wrote: ‘Be careful walking under that, sis. Riddled with bats.’

‘So much confusion’: However, it wasn’t the threat of danger that left many speechless, with some fans unsure why the selfie looked ‘weird’ and others accusing her of a Photoshop fail
‘Why does her wrist look so bendy?’ Martha’s arm left fans accusing her of badly editing it
But it wasn’t just the apparent threat of danger that left Martha’s fans speechless.
Several followers remarked that the photo was somehow ‘confusing’ and ‘disturbing’, but they couldn’t pinpoint why.
‘This photo confuses me so much,’ one person wrote, to which another replied: ‘Does this photo disturb you? I can’t put my finger on it but it just looks weird.’
Explanation? Although the selfie appeared disproportionate, the harsh camera flash for her shoot had cast shadows from the branches across parts of her body, making it look oddly sized

Some people even accused Martha of a Photoshop fail, with fans asking, ‘Why does her wrist look so bendy?’ and ‘What’s going on with your forearm?’
Although she does indeed have a wobbly wrist in the photo, there’s a plausible explanation for why her arm seems to bend unnaturally.
The flash from Martha’s camera in the ‘dark’ setting has cast shadows from the tree branches across parts of her arm, making it look unusual.
Likewise, the shadow cast under Martha’s chin has darkened her neck, making the size of her head look out of proportion with the rest of her body.
