We now have concrete evidence which proves that live pictures broadcast to the world by Apollo 11 which showed the astronaut jumping off the ladder down to the surface of the moon did NOT originate on the moon. Forget about rock shadows and shadow angles. Finally, the smoking gun. We will use NASA's images, unenhanced to prove this.

In this TV Image there are more rails on the ladder... it goes further to the ground and looks straight the whole length... and it look as low as his knee (once he is on the pad)
Image of Armstrong on ladder at 109:22:59 GET is NASA image S69-42583.
Who took it is unknown – it appears to be a handheld photo taken of a scan
converted monitor – possibly from a tape replay. The black bar across the
photo suggests the shutter speed was incorrectly set, and the curved scan
lines suggest it was taken fairly close to the convex surface of a CRT monitor.
However it could well have been another of the Goldstone Polaroids (see
below) that was poorly copied or scanned.
Image at 110:41:48 GET – a mounted Polaroid taken at Goldstone by a
Goddard PAO representative, preserved and scanned by Goldstone Unified
S-band Lead Engineer Bill Wood.
You're looking at the wrong side. You're pointing out the right hand side, as the climber faces the ladder. Look through the ladder to the left hand side, which is the one on the blurry photo. There you will see a full length metal (?) piece. That one corresponds to the one in the photo that is being questioned.
Compare the gold foil covering the legs of the lander (WHITE arrow) with the previous image in Figure 1. It does not match. RED arrow - Note shock absorber pairs on each Lander strut do not have foil but some other type of covering, probably for insulation. Source: history.nasa.gov...
Fig. 2a Closeup of strut on Lunar surface. Note shock absorber (RED arrow) is covered with foil in this photo, not the black wrapping material we see in previous images. This was also supposedly taken on the Moon's surface by an astronaut.
