Looks shopped.

I'm sorry but what are you showing us? You PASS it through a photoshop live filter and turned the contrast up or something like that?

The bright spots are the shopped area.

But the bright spots line up with the brighter areas of the image, leading me to believe just cranking the contrast up. Explain how you got this result so I can understand how you figure that from this. (though I agree this is shopped just from the appearance of the lightning, no contrast with the rest of the image, and the circumstances).

Just wanna chime in, Fgner has it right.

Seriously, don't try to call out someone on something you know nothing about. Jesus.

It's ******* IELA (Image Error Level Analysis). When you photoshop, you cause a lot of compression on manipulated layers/points of the image. By looking at the image, finding the highest points of compression and error, you can create this second image which highlights these points. It tends to stand that any place with a large compression/rate of error that is not located in a natural JPEG compression zone (almost identical repeating pixels) is photoshopped.

What kind of contrast tools are you using though? That looks nothing like turning up the contrast, it looks like a desaturation, noise filter, constrast boost, then a light edge ink filter (for color). Why go through all that trouble to pretend to say it's shopped to a bunch of guys saying it's shopped?

As for contrast, this is somewhat similar to the result I get with heavilly compressed images if I crank the contrast all the way up, then turn the saturation down a bit. Except the edges of the image...

Ah forgot about that thing. My bad, the edges of the image made me think it was some photoshop live effects layered on top of each other.

I'm going to go back to using Fireworks now
