Hmmm....the photo is interesting not only for the tan lines but the fact that he is left-handed and wears his watch on his left hand. I’m left-handed and wear my watch on my right. I thought most people wore their watch on the opposite arm. Just sayin’
When I used to wear a watch, I wore it on my right hand, my writing hand. That way, when I was writing, I could see the time while I wrote. That was way back in school though, I don’t do too much writing these days!

Today I use my cell phone as a watch, but for most of my life wore my watch on my right hand for the same reason TurnTo cited. To say most people wear their watch on their opposite hand does not mean all people do so. Things like that are only possible indicators, not positive proof, of a problem with a photo.
If I were investigating the legitimacy of a photo and saw a left-handed man with a watch on the left hand, would I ask questions? Probably. But sometimes the questions have legitimate answers.
We've got so many good reasons based on President Obama’s politics to have problems with him that I don't see the need to have problems with things like whether he is really left-handed or not.
