Did you take it? The light sourcing around the muzzle flash from the mounted gun isnt right. Screams photshop.

I dont see any brass flying but it is dark.

The guy to the lower left isnt blinking or showing any signs of recoil.

I think its a setup.

They aren't supposed to, contrary to what the VPC would have you believe.

It seems to me that there should be some empty casings (at least one??) at the feet of the two guys kneeling on the ground.

The guy at the rear of the hummer doesnt even have his finger on the trigger!

All of the flashes seem to look nearly identicle in every way other then shape. and if it was real, WTF is the guy at the front shooting at? His muzzle is pointing at the ground not more than 10 feet in front of him.


PHOTOSHOP ALL THE WAY !!!!!


ETA: theres nice lighting effects for the two guys on the ground, but the turret gunner got forgotten about. notice no flash lighting effects on the armor just behind the muzzle of the gun! nothing but shadows
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 11:02:25 AM EDT
Looks like they are shooting Wolf. Jackets are separating as bullets leave barrel....

tag for wallpaper! Great pic

I would also say that the flash from that 5.56 looks bigger than the 7.62.

Also, more importantly, I would say that their flash supressors suck.

I think its a chop. It is a cool pic. But a chop.

WTF, Jedi Soldiers???

To hell with bayonets!!!

I want a light saber hanging off my AR!!! I'm gonna post a WTB ad tonight.

Anyone else notice the front guy is in the new ACU camo and the others are in traditional desert camo?

Link Posted: 12/20/2005 12:41:37 PM EDT
My money's on chop.

If it was a long exposure, wouldn't there be some motion blur from the recoil, or the belt-fed ammo? For that fact, why aren't more shots captured from the top gunner? The guys on the ground might be firing single shots, but why isn't he rocking and rolling up there? And the odds of getting ALL THREE at the same time - psssht.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 12:55:04 PM EDT
gotta be a photoshop. No brass in the air and the odds of all 3 weapons in the picture going off at exactly the same time like that with such similar flashes are very slim
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 12:59:23 PM EDT
Yeah, it's definately gotta be a chop


Link Posted: 12/20/2005 1:00:09 PM EDT
Yep, definite PhotoChop.

If it wasn't, wouldn't the guy taking the pic be kinda in the line of fire? He would be standing farther away from them than the pic would lead you to beleive. That is about the only way he could get all of them in the pic. It is a really cool pic though.

There's just something about that picture that looks more like a Lighwave render than a real photo.

And why is one guy wearing green?
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 1:07:53 PM EDT
photoshop or no, it's cool!
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 1:08:13 PM EDT
photochop no doubt

looks as if there is brass on the ground. Look at the lower left quadrant of the pic. looks to be one casing in front of the tire in front of the foot of the guy in green. Look between the legs of the rear gunner on the ground.


I don't give a shit if you guys think its a photochop or not. I could care less. I was just sharing a nice little pic.



"can't we all just get along?"

New desktop, cool as hell, but its a Photoshop. There is NO way that the muzzle flash of two M4's and a 240(Bravo!?) is gonna be the same. The flash from a 7.62mm and a 5.56 aren't gonna be the same IMO


COOL THOUGH
