    It's obvious - not enough speed for sustained flight!

    Looks like a "Photo Shop" job.....notice nice clean cut of the railings on the porch, and NO debris on the ground.

    Nope, I think it's real. A set-up, but real. Your are right, no debris, but also notice the neat way they have the rocks around where it touches the ground.:cool: A great shot, well worthy of entry into this month's photo contest, if it is submitted by whoever took the picture, that is...:thumb:

    "Now I'm gonna hafta get the rerail frog..."

    Even if this one is a setup, there is an actual shot very similar to this taken in ca1900 in France. If you google it, you can probably find a copy...

    On closer inspection I would have to agree that it is a setup, probably photoshoped. The giveaway is the railing around the balcony. Notice how cleanly they have been cut? Still a good shot though. :thumb: :D

    Sorry Will, I tried,,,

    I think it is real, but staged. Looks like built-in advertising, like maybe for a restaurant. Anybody know where the picture was taken?

    I think the other give away is the lack of broken glass. It is a great piece though.

    You're right Andrew. That one definately looks legit.

    If it is real someone went to a lot of trouble. Can you imagine hauling it in there and then proping it up against the building? :eek: It definately would be an eye catcher though. :D
