To tell the truth, when I first viewed the full-sized version, I didn't think it was a photograph at all....but an artist's rendering instead.
But I can see now it was taken by J. Pries at LAX.
But don't you think the aircraft here has an "unreal" look to it?
Anybody else see what I'm talking about?
What causes this strange visual effect.....just the lighting conditions? Or is it just me?

The image looks to have been over sharpened in the area of the registration and US flag, leading to the bars on the flag being distorted.
But the major reason the photo looks slightly out of kilter is the colour of the sky and the position of the aircraft vis a vis the black building. These seem to give an unreal quality if you look too hard at the shot. I've had the same problem at LAX.

If you had posted this in the photography forum not only would you get a whole load of other photographers like me down your back, you'd also piss off Johan as well as Joe Pries who for your info is a professional in the business.
The photo is as real as they come
I think you are seeing JPEG compression

Um, are you the one who posted the picture of the Western DC10 that had a wheel missing? If so, try looking at the pictures on this website when sober.
Looks like a Delta 767-400 landing at LAX to me...

Yes, I can see what you are talking about. The picture, especially the tail and the belly of the aircraft, kinda looks like a painting, or like it was cut out from some where else and pasted on. I know the photo is real, but it does have an interesting animated look to.
