3 giant whales surface next to fishing boat

Hmmmmm, looks fishy to me. The boat looks like it has been added in, the waves immediately around the boat are a lot smaller than the surrounding waves.

Here's the Facebook link:

The boat and whales aren't on the same scale. Humpbacks aren't nearly that large.

The image is usually credited to Scott Methvin. One of the comments about the image on his FB page is "Nice photoshop work Scott". He's a painter. I don't see anywhere that he himself admits it's a composite.

ETA - Oh, better than just admitting it. He has the original up as well:

When we were in Newfoundland last summer fishing off the Northern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula a whale went under our boat -- i wouldn't have noticed it except for the skipper telling us about it --- i took pictures -- but all you can see is the water :( such graceful creatures.
