That’s an awesome photo of a shark! But it’s not real unfortunately
There’s an impressive photograph going viral that shows a shark leaping out of the water. Some claim it’s National Geographic’s ‘Photograph of the Year’.
This picture is unfortunately not real. And it didn’t win National Geographic’s ‘Photograph of the Year’, or any other award for that matter. It actually has been created by Russian 3D graphic artist “Alexyz3d” on their shutterstock profile. It’s just a ficitional stock photo. You can find several digitally altered images of sharks on their profile:
The images are tagged with terms such as “CG” (computer graphics), “FX” (effects), and “3D” (self-explanatory), as our colleagues from snopes.com already noted.
