AN ADVISOR at the University of Denver's student newspaper, The Clarion, suggested that the photo above would have been better with a bluer sky. And the advisor suggested that the photojournalist who created the image - at an MLK rally - digitally manipulate the sky to make it prettier.
How many of the principles of journalism would that violate?
Or, is it an acceptable thing to do? After all, magazines manipulate images frequently and nearly every glossy mag's cover has been heavily airbrushed.
