I didn't know where else to post this. A friend of a friend took a snapshot of the heavy rain / snow in the UK and this was captured. He says it wasn't there when he took the pic. What do you think?

Bad Photo shopping....he should really try and have whatever it is go smaller the farther away it gets from the camera.

The reflections on the road makes it look like something tangible. They do get smaller and that makes them look further away but the their brightness of them does not change the further away.

Shame it ruined his photo, I like the colours and composition but those stupid thingys in the way, huh

The 'thing' on the road is a small dirty pile of snow, highlighted by a flash. How it ended up repeating is a different story. Did he use a digitaL camera? Or it is photoshopped.

It's rather interesting how people's "friends" always seem to contribute so much material via proxy of our members, almost like, hmmm, they themselves were interested in posting strange stuff on a conspiracy website.
Funny how that works.

It's kind of like those embarrassing situation advice questions where a, ahem, erm, "friend" has a problem and was wondering what they should do about it.

As to the photo itself; it's rather remarkable how the primary focus of attention, the angel christmas ornament (singular) is repeated several times, and depending one's perspective, it either gets surrealistically larger the farther away it is, or, surrealistically smaller the closer it is to the camera.

Perhaps Salvadore Dali invented a camera lens that can cause this effect and your "friend" is using the lens to photograph the same christmas decoration across multiple exposures on a single frame through lens-capping?

... or, perhaps, someone's "friend" using Photoshop has yet to grasp the finer points of perspective?

All in all, it's a pretty fun, and quite hilarious illusion effect.
If that's what the intent was; bravo.
If not, then, remember it and save it for the surrealism segment of art class.

It would be interesting to ask your friend to ask his friend to provide raw photograph as it was taken with whatever device they were using.
Once raw photo is obtained you can post it here for our expert members to take a look.

Cute..

Tell 'your friend' to use the width of the road as reference. Use the measurement tool, measure the width of the road, then measure the artifact..use the same ratio for the artifact's that are supposed to be further down the road.

Well your "friend" is correct, the objects weren't there when he took the pic.......he shopped them in later!

TBH I can't believe that you think this is a genuine photo in any shape of form.

Whatever it is, the photo looks doctored and the subject (light angel thing) was probably cloned several times. Photoshop or Gimp can do wonders. Just an observation from a naked eye.

I can't even think why you would want a snapshot of that scene in the first place, it has no merit.

The first thing I always ask is, "Why was the picture taken in the first place?"
Its just an empty strech of road, what was he trying to take a picture of in the first place?

Yeah, definitely shopped.

It has an eerie feel to it though.

BWAHAHAHA...that's so lame.

You have a bad friend and you should feel bad.
