This photo is amazing. This looks to be legitimate to me. If it is a hoax it's a very ingenious one. There is even light reflected from the eyes!

I agree. And look at the mouth. You can see (or I think you can anyway), the bottom lip drooping much like a large primate.

Looks real,mostly because of the eyes.

in my opinion this cannot be a hoax, first of all the eyes reflect and for the later part you can see his gums teeth and lip droop. all in all if real, a very lucky shot.
