"oh, that's not a real photograph - that's fake"

How many of you have had that reaction to one of your pictures you have taken? I recently posted a picture of an individual snow crystal I captured with my macro gear, and several people online and in person have said to me "oh that's not real - that's photo-shopped" or even "snowflakes don't look like that in real life - that's an ornament". Here's the picture in question:

I find it so funny how quick people are to give their opinion having no knowledge on the subject at all....

I do wonder if that's just the age we live in now - an age of disbelief due to what we are able to "create" using high end graphic programs like Photoshop and others that make the impossible - possible?

I am interested in some responses here in regard to your experiences with "picture doubt"....
