I've been thinking the same thing Rich.....It just does not seem quite right to me and I have seen quite a few pictures and videos of this terrible event and none come anywhere close to the picture above...plus...there's just something about it.....it looks doctored !!

I'm with you guys. The photo has been doctored. The water is more in focus than the land and that wave is only about 2 metres high (not the 20 stories it appears).

I was thinking that too. it looks like the wave is only just forming. plus, I realised that a photo like this that was real would have been on all the front pages by now!
