Yes there is IS A REASON for that kind of contrast, the picture of the fallen man shows
NORTH TOWER + SOUTH TOWER == 2 towers -> this is why there is different contrast, you see both towers on the shot.
It's sad that i as someone only remotely interested in conspiracy found that information after 2 mins of Googling, while the idiots without a brain (like on that forum where they claim the jumpers are faked) don't know this and use their own ignorance as evidence that the shot is faked.
On this page:
You can see the falling man and TWO buildings (second image on that site), with the one building to the left darker contrast than the one to the right. The fallen man picture was shot so that by coincidence and camera angle the guy is right between the two buildings.
What ***tty conspiracy theory is that which can be debunked using 2 mins work and research?edit on 12-9-2011 by flexy123 because: (no reason given)

It's a bit cowardly to kill yourself by jumping, afraid to burn or face pain.
Who is to say that splattering yourself all over the pavement you wont feel
even greater pain for dying that completely outdues the burning alive?
Doctors. Doctors say that.
*You shouldn't be calling those people cowards. It is a disgraceful and a shameful thing to do and I doubt you would do it in real life.

People KNEW they would die if they stayed. If they jumped, they had at least an infitisimally small chance of surviving; which is more than they had in staying. A few people have survived falling out of airplanes with chutes that didn't open. It's rare, but, it's still a chance.
Sure, many may have been suicides ... but, I would have tried for the "longshot" of surviving the dive.
Certain religions I am familiar with are not supposed to 'judge' so it seems hypocritical for them to be so harsh.
Just my 'never been humble' opinion.

Let's see you take a picture of an object falling from a distance and see how clear you make it. And if you have gone to any Art College, and anyone who has gone to any legitimate arts program through any university, you would be taught the fundamental lessons of color theory, how cool colors recede and warm colors advance. The reason the back part was lighter is because it was further back. It was the other tower.
And anyone who has gone to any Art College, especially ones that teach photography, film, and graphic design have learned fundamental truths about what it takes to make or fake. The lies that this is fake is made by people who know nothing about art or color theory. They don't know that no one can edit live film as it is happening live. They do not know that no one can edit photos live, as it is happening live.
What you have is supposition based on ignorance of film editing and photo editing. Today the most advanced film editing programs still do not have the capability of editing live as it happens. When you toss pictures out there with all the little arrows and words, how do you know the person who posted the picture did not take an old picture and doctor it before telling you that someone else did?
Ask anyone who went to any legitimate Art program in any university. Color theory....warm colors advance, cool colors recede. That is fundamental. When people learn that, then we can move on to the next step.edit on 9/12/2011 by WarminIndy because: (no reason given)edit on 9/12/2011 by WarminIndy because: (no reason given)

i not really able to think of a worse more painful way to die than to be burned alive,although i'm sure ther are other horribly painful ways.but what i think about when i see these unfortunate people hanging and standing outside the broken windows and parts of the towers that were exposed to the outside is how they were watching helicopters filming them from not very far away and how the people up in the upper levels of both towers that were looking out,did'nt know that they were going to collapse,but when the people up there saw and heard the unimaginably thunderous roar of the tower falling right next to them,then,they knew that the tower they were standing in was going to fall as well and i wonder if thats when a lot of people who jumped,decided to jump?

I think it is quite possible that these people held on until they could not breathe anymore, or until the fresh air seemed better than the being burnt and not being able to breathe and the heat that they were enduring. Maybe they hoped upon hope that someone would get one of those trampoline things set up after they saw enough folks jump. Why didnt the helicopters swoop over and throw down some ropes at least that would have been some hope for these people. But I never would condemn them for what they did, and I'm not God, if I have compassion to not condemn, then I have to guess that God does also, I don't think he wanted them to burn to death. And maybe as another poster stated, they felt they may have a chance even jumping...
