    IMO, it's impossible for that to be an undoctored photo. You can take a ruler and the bullet is perfectly lined up with the barrel. With the bullet that distance from the barrel, he could not have made the shot, reacted to the recoil and about to drop the hammer again with virtually no movement. The gun's details are sharp as is the hammer and the hand. Does it look to anyone else that the bullet itself might be tipped a bit downward (very slight) despite the fact that it is aligned with the barrel?

    There appears to be about an 1/8" or a bit more of recoil present which would mean that the gun was pointed slightly lower at the point of ignition. Look at the area behind the recoil shield to see what I mean. There is a ghost of the gun at full recoil.

    I do agree that this doesn't appear to be one photo but multiples. Even assuming Jerry M. it would mean the shutter was open for more than 125th of a sec to catch the shot and the hammer back. Even with Tri X 3200 the hammer would be blurred and if the exposure was that long the cylinder and virtually everything else would be as well. They probably cocked the gun single action shot a frame and then again at firing. The gray area around the hammer could be part of the shop job.

    Only the people involved with shooting the picture know for sure right?

    Good Eye!
    The hand is also slightly Ghosted.
    I think these photographers were all from New Zealand.
    I'm guessing that the photo is not intentionally faked but, maybe a little extra "burning & dodging" during printing in the darkroom...maybe.

    I was on some other Research Photography site and they have a special camera that can operate at speeds up to...ready for this...1 Million Frames Per Second. I would like to see a Colt .45 pistol shot in front of that camera.

    I go with the doubble print story, becuse of when the bullet was fired the gun for some reason was blured they used the first shot of just the gun, a little photo shop and tada a composite picture that leaves a observant individual asking questions.

    I call a fake too. Mostly cause of the lack of recoil and muzzle flash. Also I don't think anyone can pull a trigger for a second shot that fast.

    I'm thinking it's a 'double exposure', but not the way you think. I'm betting the shutter was left open, the strobe goes off before the shot is made(single action), trigger is pulled, and whether the next flash of light is triggered by sound, or just 'strobing'(think disco lights), the bullet is captured in flight and the ghosting is from both the second strobe and/or the muzzle flash, then the shutter is closed. Bet they didn't get this particular photo on the first try, either.

    All the damn years in Photography schools and see what I've become now....

    scratchy wilson ~ We have a winner!

    I went back and checked out some of the other photos in this exhibition & I'm best guessing that there was some way that this photographer legitimately took this photo. In other words...NOT faked.
    So your explanation seems like it is the most likely.
    Your "setup scenario" would replicate the photographic image as it is displayed.
    An INTERESTING bit of complex photography!

    I can't offer bullet in flight but - I'll claim an excuse to post this pic yet again on web - my all time fave muzzle flash. With the help of my son 18 months ago - we got this shot - I can still not work out how or why it stayed so sharp.

    Shot with a Kodak DX6340 - with shutter open for half second or so - must have lucked out right at end of shutter period.

    Gun - Raging Bull .454 - shooting whimp Win 240 grain loads ... half the power of hot Hornady 300 grainers but - as you can see - a real fire dragon load!

    Thx Bud - I almost feel ''guilty'' because I post it so much. However - as it was such a great piece of luck just wanna make sure all folks see it. Not an ego thing - just wanting to share what to me is a pic in a million
