Now with that all said and done. I still think it's a fake. I did a little test in PS. I made a black dot about the size of the SR-71 and saved a
copy. Opened it up again and all the EXIF data is still there. I think if the changes are small and subtle it won't remove that data.
Another reason I believe it's fake is that the SR-71 is fairly sharp in focus. Yet the trees infront of it look slightly blurred around the edges.
Also I'd think the SR-71 wouldn't be so dark. It's should be faded a little bit due to the distance and atmospheric haze.
My 2c anyway.
