Looks like he is into storm chasing during the season.
I think what it is that makes it look fake maybe is the material it's sucking up. The spout could be over a plowed field which contrasts badly with
the green fields in the foreground. That and he should have masked the spout from sharpening which is a bit of an error in my opinion. But then if its
sharpened for print its probably fine in print.

It was a real twister, and it did happen today. My guess is he enhanced the photo via photoshop, but this event did happen. I live in southern
Colorado, saw the vid of it, but it wasn't that stunning. I have no doubt the photo was taken, but I really don't think it looked quite like the pic
in the OP. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I'm not seeing this pic in any of the local feeds.

Went to his site and noticed he loves using HDR imaging. That gives everything that grainy, disjointed look that can make things appear to be
I'm sure that the material is quite real, but clearly he shopped the hell out of it to make it an uber spectacular image.

I don't think this video can be embedded on ATS, but if anyone wants to see the video of this twister, it's right here on the KKTV
home page. Watch it soon because they always update the page, the link will be gone within a day or so.
It is a cool picture but it just looks so much more like a watercolor painting. I didn't mean to question the validity of the event itself. There
was not enough information provided when I first viewed it, but I do not take tornadoes lightly at all. I have seen firsthand the devastation they
I love photography and I'm also a weather nerd, but this looks photoshopped. I'm not that familiar with Photoshop but I've seen a lot of great tornado
pics as I follow some of the well known storm chasers. Definitely an awesome picture as far as photography goes but I doubt it's "natural." Thanks for
sharing though. Makes me want to go storm chasing which is one of my goals.
