I gave the person who "created" the smaller image many opportunities to discretely remove their post to a particular Facebook page, as they were trying to pass the smaller image off as their own work. Now if they had just posted it as an image manipulation, I would have applauded it, but trying to gain likes by passing it off as his own work really pisses me off as a photographer.
Sorry Phill, but I gave you plenty of chances to avoid this.
Click the image above and you can view it at full-size.
1: If you look closely, you'll notice that the Starfleet logos on the nacelles of the smaller photo are backwards (reversed image).
2: The pylons either side of the bridge are at a much steeper angle than those on the Eaglemoss model (which the smaller image is supposedly a photo of).
3: Every illuminated window is matched in both images (as the model doesn't have lighting, the 'creator' of the photo would have to add these digitally, and to match them exactly, after denying seeing the larger photo goes against all laws of probability!).
4: The angle and lighting of the ships is identical.
5: One of the stars in the larger imaged survived the soft-focus blur that was applied to the smaller one, and is still visible above the right nacelle.
6: The level of detail, even on the smaller image, exceeds that which is present on the model.
The larger image can be found by following THIS LINK
, and can be found half-way down the page. As you will see, the blog is dated as the 11th of February 2013, which is 6 months before the models were available in the shops, and roughly 10 months before the Alternate Future Enterprise D was released to subscribers.
