    My friend took this picture of me back in november. I am preforming a running frontflip yes in my socks and pajama bottoms. Now for some reason this picture looks extremely fake, and only about 2 out of 50 people believe its real.
    I want to see if you guys can spot any details in this picture to help me prove its real, or I want to hear why you think its fake if thats what you think.

    It was taken with a 5.1 megapixel Nikon e5400. I'm pretty sure the shutter speed was 1/250 or else something close to that.

    It is real. If it was even opened up and saved in PS, it would say so in the EXIF. And the EXIF is untouched on this photo.

    There are prints in the pic, but none of them lead up to (or stop at) the spot where he would need to have jumped up

    What kind of idiot would do a backflip on snow/ice in socks.

    I hope he busted his arse.

    Just because the exif data is there does not mean it can't be faked...

    Theory 1: Poster digitally manipulated multiple photos to give the impression of doing a front flip in the snow wearing socks, then faked the EXIF data on the resulting composite to fool people he doesn't know on the internet.

    Or...

    Theory 2: Poster did a a front flip in the snow in his socks while a friend took a shitty picture of it.

    see Ockham's razor.

    open it in PS and go to adjustments - equalize, you can SEE the footprints in the snow

    Looks real to me without looking at the exif data. I had alot of people tell me that this pic was fake............its of a friends RC18T remote control car. It does look rather odd.........but then again its a 70-300mm lens, and the car was only about 10 feet away.

    HOLY shit that picture in the snow is fake as fuck. Look at the snow in the foreground: the footsteps show that it is obviously 3"+ of powder. There is not one footprint up to where the flip is taking place, powder would be in the air from kicking off, on your clothes, etc. Worst fucking fake I've ever seen not that it matters.

    I never said it was fake. I think it's real. I'm just pointing out that going by the exif data is not a sure way to prove anything since that data can be altered...
