Which is more likely:

1) Four Arab kids happen to throw stones at the exact same time so that the photographer can capture not only the kids but also the stones in mid-air, increasing his chances of winning an award.

2) The photographer shouting to the kids after getting them in optimal position, "Wahid, ithnan, thalatha (1-2-3) THROW!"
