    Why would you think that?

    Checking with the web site noted in the image, and the source of your
    image, it seems pretty legit to me.

    Of course you might be doing one of three things, asking a sincere
    question, trolling the group to provoke a pointless debate, or spamming
    the group to promote www.ultimatemotocycling.

    I am asking a sincere question.

    Seems to me as if the surf in front of the motorcycle is a patch. Here
    is what I think is the outline of the patch (yellow line):

    http://coolhaus.de/misc/this-pic-is-doctored.jpg

    The surf is an almost straight line, in reality it should align better
    with the shape of the pannier, the vehicle frame, the driver's knee.

    The wet parts of the vehicle body (red line) are just a few inches above
    the water line. In a strong current like this, I'd expect more of the
    vehicle to be wet.

    And the driver's knee is entirely dry, I thought that was unlikely.

    Mainly because of the water flowing from under the front wheel well, I think
    it's legit.

    I thought it was real because of the wet higher up on the motorcycle.
    I've had people send me pictures and ask what I thought, too.

  8. If it is not faked, then it is the moment before the motorcycle
    completely fails because the carburetors (or fuel injectors) are
    under-water and dysfunctional. Another hint is the borderline of the
    water and earth which defies depth-of-field.

    It is either a fake or a picture of the motorcyclist about to bail out

    If it's real it probably wouldn't be very good for the motorccycle LOL

    If the bike is moving forward, your expectation that the surf
    would not appear roughly as a straight line perp to the 'film'
    plane is unreliable
    This too is flawed reasoning, because there would be a moment at
    which the water had splashed to what you see, why could the snap
    have not been taken at that point?

    I thought the bike was just sitting still in the water, having been ridden
    or pushed in till it died and came to a stop. Also, where is the person
    taking the picture- out on the water in a boat?

    So deeply immersed in Water, a bike can move only very slowly. The surf
    appears not to be caused by the bike's movement, but by the current
    coming from the left. Therefore, the surf should align closely with the
    pannier, the driver's knee and especially with the gap between these
    two. Instead, it stands there like a wall.

    Interesting topic for discussion, overall. So much now is doctored, there's
    even a word for it now (outside of graphic design/art) "photoshopped".
    (well I'm sure everyone here knows this.)

    I'm surprised there isn't a law passed now saying anything that is changed
    or "photoshopped" has to be marked that. Though it could also be seen as
    "artistic license". Inhancing and changing- creating pictures is a form of
    art.
