Not Telling the Truth

Yesterday I went back to Maroon Bells to try to take a decent photograph of it since I had been unsuccessful the day before. I had toyed with the idea of putting two images together to create a good one but decided that was "cheating."

This morning I was looking for the elevation of the ghost town Ashcroft when I found this image by a "professional" photographer who will remain unnamed. Nice image ... much better than the one I took while I was there ... the one below.

You may notice a pretty dramatic difference, however ... the absence of the dramatic mountain in the background. Yep, photoshop strikes again. And, actually not all that skillfully.

Somehow, just because something can be done doesn't mean it should be done. Where are our professional ethics?
