    If that is natural, then that pic is epic.

    Well, it's clever - But I just looked more closely. The trees on the right are definitely copy and pasted - You can see pixilation artifacts around them. More clever would have been to do a really tight copy - outlining the trees precisely. Artifacts around the island on the left too, probably from shaping the image.

    It is cool - but now I gotta go bust my friend who made a big deal out of it being natural!

    If not real, still a great idea. Who plays it? Yehudi Menuhin?

    Not to say that it's not photoshopped, but the pixellation artifacts there are jpeg compression artifacts, and the blockiness on the left look a lot like video compression artifacts, as if the picture (perhaps pre-photoshop?) was a still from a video (from a not-so-great camcorder).

    A bit of googling and other image searching has not turned up any insight as to where the image came from (nor photoshop status) ... but it is a neat looking picture regardless!

    Yes, you're right that it looks like it could be from a video. It's the halo of artifacts around the trees on the right which is the dead give away that they were pasted in. They're exactly like the pixilation analyzed in some fake UFO hoaxes.

    Such a neat concept though - very clever.
