Default Real or Fake? (PIC)

Here is a picture of a deer that was killed in Kentucky.

The rumor goes like this.

Supposively this story aired on the news recently. Said he was in the woods and seen it coming towards were he was hunting. The deer was already injured and he finished it off. He was not the first person to shoot it but he finished it off so he would claim it.

I do not know anything else about this buck. If it is real, then WOW!!

Not trying to cause any controversy, but would love to see if anyone had anymore info on the buck?

kshunter, this is an easy one. It's not hard to tell it's a fake and here's why. If you look at the G6 and G7 on the deers right antler you can see where the person tried to put a shadow of the antler behind it. The problem is that the shadow is the exact same size as the points. This would not even be close to realistic seeing as how the rack is a good 6 foot from the back of the cab (which is where the shadow falls). For example, if you have a spotlight 20' from a wall and then place your hand 6' from the wall the shadow is going to be alot bigger and distorted a little, it's funny how this shadow is clear as a bell and no larger than the points themselves. People that don't know much about lighting, shadow everything they draw, paint, or edit in this manner.

Fake. Look at the left antler where it lines up with the edge of his shirt. You can see where it has a photoshop splice (and a lousy one at that!). The right antler is harder to see, but if you blow it up and look closely you can see the vertical splice there too. That and the shadowing previously posted scream FAKE!!!!

Great looking deer, but I would have to say fake.
