you can keep sayin what ever you like, I am well versed in photography, you insuated that since the photo was taken before CGI, that some how it is not faked.
On top of I am only arguing that specific photo, not what people saw, The photos are of extremely poor quaity, and who ever photographed these images, made sure it was out of focus, or blury, and made sure that people were not framed in the photo clearly and looking at the manifisation. I don’t care that the photos are probably faked, it doesnt change what people saw that day, and chances are someone wanted to create a photo that came close to what was actually seen, an look i dont have to prove that people were faking photos, it is just common sense that it is very possible and probably. The only thing that matters is does the image help the faithful or not. If it does help the faithful then it just doesnt matter that it is faked. If it is real, then even better. Just would have been nice, if the photographer didn’t take such horrible photos and didnt use obvious techniques to manipulate the images.
