Not all photo edits are unethical

Photo editors at Hungarian news website Origo found a photo that seems to be retouched before publication on the website of one of the radio channels operated by BBC. A portrait of one of the musicians has been cropped out from a group shot and some details in the background have been cloned out. BBC claims it is not a faking of the photo because the photo is not used as a news image.

No more need for photographers – or journalists

I disagree with the statement in the title but the recurring photographer layoffs and many comments suggest this. This time a journalist expressed his quite similar opinion. I think he just challenged his fate because it is a dangerous thing to start prove your boss that everyone can be replaced with cheaper workforce – they might believe you and take it serious.

Gallery collection: Best of 2013 selections

It is a habit at the end of every year to make a selection of the best photos taken during the course of the year. This year is no different. Most of the websites made their own selections. I only had to collect these collections together (just like I did last year and the year before as well) to make it easier for you to find the best photos of the year passing away.
