An LA Times photographer was fired for altering a photo that ran on the front page of that esteemed publication. He combined elements of two seperate shots to “improve the composition.” Here’s the altered photo. Notice the nine-foot tall British soldier gesturing in a threatening way toward the helpless, terrified Iraqi civilians.
Here are the two original photos, taken moments apart.
If he would have had time, he probably could have managed to get one of the tanks from my post below into the picture as well.
