All news photos are manipulated. What can we do about it :
Creating rules and regulation around photo manipulation is misleading and dangerous for photojournalism. Instead, what should be empowered is ethics.

Audience sensibility will not allow some things. Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 movie Psycho had to shot in B&W because B&W blood swirling down the drain caused terror. Technicolor blood would have caused revulsion.

I see color shots in French News Magazines that would never make the front page of the NYTimes.

That is a concerning move by Microsoft for those in the Photography business
Microsoft's Bing has created the Bing Image Widget making It possible for any Bing user to imbed, free of charge, on their web site or blog any images found in a Bing Images search.

What we are experiencing today is the shift of power from a handful of photojournalists backed by large media to millions of camera phone users backed by Instagram.

Google plus photo as a stand alone app has huge potential to become the number one photo sharing app on your phone. Will Google take advantage of it ?
