Ethical as long as indicated so.

Why not vote yes?

Yes, but only if it's notated as a composite image. That selection isn't available in the poll, so consider this my vote instead.

re: #3 Thanos

Heh. I made a crappy poll. Should have included that. Live and learn.

I'm okay as long as the picture is stated to be composite. Then it's art.

re: #4 Rightwingconspirator

Np I've left off options in my polls too. I wonder if there's a way to do that without photoshop in a T2i?

Ethical as long as photo is indicated as being a composite or HDR.

I'm with the others; it's okay as long as indicated clearly & prominently and not intended to generate fear, anger, prejudice, etc. (i.e. as long as it's not indicated in a distant footnote in 6pt text, or intended to purposely misrepresent or sway opinion about a hard news story).

Been doing this to long to see any of this kind of manipulation as anything other than blatantly screamingly unethical in any non artistic setting. If there is any chance of confusion, then it's just as wrong now as the "fairy" pictures were once upon a time. Perhaps if it's labeled as mentioned above but I'd still say it can only be used in art.

Of course, part of my knee jerk is a reflexive disgust at the whole HDR garbage. Probably why I have my Olympus E-P1 set to square aspect ration & monotone - a mini-digital MF camera. If only I could flip the image in my add on view finder so that I could look down like on a TLR! LOL :D

A "news" photo should look as it would to the naked eye. Anything else is other than news.
