Whelan’s argument is very convincing. His points of the photo not being staged is good, but i still believe it is staged. The way the person in the photograph is falling doesn’t look realistic to me. It seems off because normally you wouldn’t see someone fall in that angle. I don’t think its authenticity matters because the photo looks awesome to see. The way the photo was shot makes it interesting.
