When Pretty Drives Aren’t That Pretty

Over on Jim Romenesko’s site, there’s an entertaining discussion of photo ethics going on regarding a cover of Down East magazine.

So, if we allow (and this is a BIG allowance) that covers of lifestyle magazines shouldn’t be held to the same ethical standards as news coverage, when your cover story is titled “Maine’s Prettiest Drives,” shouldn’t your image show how pretty they really are? Not how pretty you can make them in Photoshop?

I mean, I guess we’re getting close enough to augmented reality with Google Glass that this interpretation of reality could be seen in real time … but we’re not there yet.

Thankfully …
