i kept looking at those pictures and something just doesn't seem right. I htink they might be a series of fakes.

I work with photoshop everyday and am well aware of how to make a snazzy composite as well as how to spot composites.

Few things:

3rd pic from top if they were hard on reverse there woudl be some aeration cuased byuteh prop and ther woudl be a frothy white area near teh stern of the baot (we shodul all knwo that one) In additionthe color just deosnt; seem right. The pilot house is just to white compared to eth rest of eth picture. Also eth logo is very white and clean for an old river tug

4th pic if the current was so strogn that they couldn't back down when th actually hit the bridge why is there nota **** load of water swelling up near the stern?

5th look at the wall on eth brdige on the middle of teh bottom of eth picture. terh eis some wierd blurriness there. This isn;t in any of the other similar pics. BUT in eth othe rsimilar pics there is soem kind of plant growing there.whcih isn;t in #5

6th what si eth red blotch of to eth left? Seems awfully digital to me. Not smooth enough to be a lens flare and if it was red fropm eth film beign exposed there woudlbe more of it. And it woudl ocurr on eth rets of the role

10th and 11th a drenched flag might have diffiluty flying Not to mention if teh currnt was stong enough to pull a tug under couldn;t easily rip a flag off?


10th 11th 12th 13th And that little tower thign wit the blue dorr between eth brigde and th tug just look OFF for some reason. SLook to similar in to different pictures. Also eth wate rocmming off looks to blurry. Not liekit should The color differentiation shoudl be greater between pixels. The colo shoudl be more contrasted from pixel to pixel a muchgrainier look. It look lie kit was blurred togehter or a picture of a water fall was used and composited in and blurred to blend in woteth surround area

Ther eis some othe rstuff but ath is teh majorthign i notice.

One more the peopel on the barge in the last few pics. If a out of control tug that just turtled was headed at you and the barge you were standing on wodul you stand still or try to get to eth otehr end away from danger.
And ithe current was fast enough so they coudn;t back down how come the "runaway"barges are only a little ways down eth river?

Just some stuff i noticed

You know something really funny Puder? I did not know you wrote that post (I didn't look) as I am reading this I am thinking that this guy is worse than Puder. So I check it out and it was you. I think you are going down hill. you had improved for a while. It is very interesting trying to figure out what you are saying. Almost like a puzzle.

Question

The stacks are broken but the top deck was not cleared and the way it came out of the bridge would have striped it. The guys on the Barge are too funny. That one is not right.
