Hafizabad is a city located 94 km north of Faisalabad on Faisalabad-Wazirabad Railway section. In a seemingly dare-devil stunt, this guy is seen jumping across freight box cars.

    About the train having less pixels theory, I think it’s just the texture and color of the boggies that make it look like less detailed than other surfaces. If this was fake, the easiest way to do that would be to take a picture of boggies and put a boy on top. Why would you put four pictures together. How absurd. Sure someone can fake it, but if you start thinking like that you wouldn’t be able to trust anything or anyone.

    i think some people here are making the wrong conclusions…
    the brick/wall may seem to have two layers but then it looks like there ARE two layers…if you look just in front of the boy (to the left) there is a very small shadow cast by the bricks on the wall next to them…

    and there is no reason there should be any shadow of the boy on the train on the grass-look at the shadow of the bogey on the right! it suggests that the sun is to the right and behind the photographer,and the angle is such that the boy’s shadow would be to the left,beyond the left border of the photo.remember this is a cropped photo.

    the ‘grey background’ is simply the platform beyond the bogeys…

    and the pixelation is simply less obvious on the bogeys….

    oh,the lighting matches,of course it does…

    the train may or may not be motionless-what i think happened here is that the shutter speed was slow and the photographer’s hand may have moved…because the grass in the background is blurred too…and if the timing was right,it is perfectly possible that the only moving object in the picture (the boy) was NOT blurred.

    this doesn’t seem manipulated.

    owais,any chance we could get the EXIF data for the photo? that’s the shutter speed,aperture,time photo was taken,etc…

    Owais: This is a great photo – the colours , movement, etc.
    Loved the caption of the post as well!
    thanks for all the pics that you discover

    I chose this photo b/c the photographer explained this jump was happening on a stationary train which makes it a very likely real event. I also saw quite a few photographs from the photographer taken in and around at Hafizabad station and they all look pretty real.

    One more thought: if the train is not moving as suggested by the photographer of Trekearth then the pixels of the train, the boy and the background should be the same, and they are not……….why? anyone.
