I'd be surprised if this incident hasn't already been posted, but this looks off. The hoarding just doesn't look right, not in the slightest. The overall decal and blurring is horrendously inconsistent. Seriously, I could do a better job than that with MSPaint.

More info.

The C.S.S. thing appears phony but what's the story? Gotta link?

It's just a depth of field issue from a telephoto lens.

The C.S.S. plaque was probably added at a later date than the other two, hence the disconnect. If it were a doctored photo it would be harder to see the line between it. It is RIDICULOUSLY easy to blend two different colors together in photoshop. If one went through all the effort to insert and skew a plaque of the C.S.S. into the photo and neglected to remove the line from his edit... Well, that person has no business near photoshop.

I'm not following you. Can you point out what it is you see in this photo? Thanks.

There's reflections on the motor, anyone know exactly where this is? Maybe we could use google maps to check the reflections match up!

Yeah, seems like the BBCode has changed. Sorry about that, should be good now.

AGree it would be easy, but there's PLENTY of shopped pics prsented by the media that are extremely badly shopped.

Then I would say that these "doctorers" should be fired. Even a basic understanding of photo editing will prevent mistakes like I described. I still contend there is no doctoring here, but rather another plaque was added before or after the other two.

Wow, that didn't take long.
Now point out all the fake actors before someone else.

Not realy disputing that this photo may be genuine, just saying that poor "doctoring" does happen, alot! I remember the photo that was in all the media when the london bombings happened, it showed a person walking past a window, the reflection in the window showed the front view of that person, it should have shown their back. That photo was plastered all over the media!

Looks OK to me, not sure what you are seeing.

Here is the sign from a few different angles.





This photo wasn't doctored. The C.S.S. plaque is genuinely a lighter shade of blue.

Fair enough. Maybe it's my just my wonky eyes after having not slept for 36 hours.

Poor journalism from BBC I gotta say, their picture does look messed up. That, what you posted there, is crystal-clear. Case closed, and thanks for the input because I started asking serious questions...
