Probably fake. Bombs drop so fast there is usually little or no time to react like these people seem to be doing.

This has photoshop written all over it. Why is the photographer not running? Is he dead now?

Agreed. Never saw one (missile or free-fall ordnance) enroute, but certainly knew when they arrived.

At 300 meters/sec you’d expect a lot of blurring even with a very, very fast shutter speed. My guess is a staged photo, with possibly a photoshopped round or an inert round dropped off a crane.

First time I saw that picture years ago it was supposed to be Palestinians running for cover after they launched rockets/mortars at Israel.

I don’t see any kids being killed. Who are you referring to?

Looks fake. It would have to have extremely high shutter speed to capture the bomb dropping so clearly. I suspect if it were real, the bomb would just look like a smudge.

I found it on a blog, and later after posting realized it was photo shopped. But it is kind of cool for chat.

I’m not a professional photographer, but I don’t believe there’s any way does a camera that is optimized for photographing reasonably still subjects, captures a bomb falling through space at terminal velocity.

I found a REAL picture on the internet of a guy in a WINTER coat standing on the top of the twin towers with the terrorists flying the jet into the tower in the background. Somehow, lord only knows, the camera survived everything, and was found in a load of steel girders with the photographers hand still on the clicker....there is no way it isn’t a real picture....since I found it on the internet and all.........

Google "fauxtography".

This picture is number six or seven on the first page of the search results.

The feet are strange, like the Photoshopper did the difficult work of placing the running kids in the scene, when the easiest thing to do would be to put the bomb in the sky above running kids.

I also was wondering if it was supposed to be an American bomb killing Innocent civilians.

Ping me again when you can get a REAL picture of a Trident II MIRV heading towards Mecca.

Yeah right. When I see a bomb about to detonate right next to me I think I’ll stop and take a picture of it. This is Pshopped. No doubt. The bomb would be more blurred regardless of shutter speed.

You are right. When you zoom you can see the cut-out outline of the sky around the bomb.
