    absolutely not! this photo was taken in 1942. There was no photoshop back then. This photo is quite amazing considering the technology. That light coming from the left is a flash bulb. It has to be pretty bright to overpower the ambient daylight.

    I'm having difficulty believing that this was taken in 1942. Talk about skill, it is humbling to see this kind of work.
