I read this today, and thought it was good for a little comic relief. No doubt a lot of you have already seen it.http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/when-photoshop-goes-wrong-floating-inspectors-cause-internet-stir-20120523-1z3zo.html
I can't understand how anyone expected such slipshod attempts at forgery to pass for real photos. My best guess is that the government officials couldn't be bothered to visit the sites in person, and instructed some unfortunate underling to fake the photos instead. The underling wasn't an expert, but did the best (s)he could, with predictable results. Perhaps the photos accompanied a boring propaganda piece that few people would actually read, so the author hoped that nobody would notice?
Once again, critics get it wrong: this isn't bad PSing, this is real, observed levitation,
of which much oriental charm is constructed. That's why there's that unbearabe lightness of being, which appears in so much of the art from the region. The ying and the yang and the wham and the bam, the ding and the dong of it, as it were.
