    But consider that the ship's bows just happen to be pointed directly
    at the 'distant' photographer, and that it is also underway at the
    time.  Quite a coincidence.
    But other analysis of the photo, particularly the heights of the
    foremast and its yards compared with their counterparts on the main
    mast indicate that the photographer was not miles away, but on the
    water just a bit forward of the ship.
    Frank thinks that the entire ship was photoshopped.  The evidence of
    the cloned upper yards is convincing, but I am not so sure about the
    hull and lower masts.
