Thought I would point out another aviation forum where one of Bailey's amazing pictures is being questioned as to whether its fake. Fair enough its only one or two people, and mayb Bailey has already seen it but thought I should bring it to his attention just in case. Click Here
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

The fact of the matter is people get jealous! When people see wonderful pictures they know they could never take then they like to start rumours! Stupid arses!!! Lol, Bailey is one of the luckiest people in the world with his job and we are even luckier he is handy with a dslr!!!
P.S. LOL @ Colins remark!

What a bunch of losers. I look forward to the day I can capture shots of this kind of quality, and yet there are these two-bit armchair punks who don't know anything beyond how to yank their own dicks accusing people of image manipulation.
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

John - thanks for the reference and your support.
Whoo-hoo - seems I have joined the elite group of fakers.
I love the classic "proof" from Vimac - "I can't do it, so no one else can"
Mind you, with the Thai shot I actually think the accusuation of "fakery" is understandable ... the lighting was a bit weird and does make the 747 look like a pretty crude cut 'n' paste. When I first saw it on the screen I thought "Sh*t, this looks like a composite!" and half expected it to be questioned.
But, as with all my shots here, its the real thing. Hell, as visitors to a certain other site will know, if I want to play with Photoshop, I go for something a little more outrageous!
