    Excellent point. There was not need to crop the photo when digital resizing is easy. Someone else earlier in the thread suggested that it was cropped to bring more "detail" to the soldier. I see absolutely no more detail with the cropped photo when it comes to the soldier.

    One problem is that the image could not be proportionate to the format it is going into. 5x7 is not proportionate to 8x 10.

    This entire thread seems to be a non-issue because, as I've already pointed out, the original photo was un-cropped.

    I question where LGF got this supposedly doctored photo from or if they changed the photo themselves to create a controversy.

    Where are you seeing that the original photo was uncropped? Reuters has acknowledged that the photo they initially published was cropped:

    “The images in question were made available in Istanbul, and following normal editorial practice were prepared for dissemination which included cropping at the edges," the news agency said in a statement. "When we realized that a dagger was inadvertently cropped from the images, Reuters immediately moved the original set as well."

    That in part is why I keep asking for the article attached to the picture. It would tell us more.

    Reducing makes it harder to see, and frankly it's hard to see as is. However, I linked a photo array from reuters and challenge you to show they are showing anything that is showing the soldiers not being attacked. Hoplite links the pictures as well, but no one's answered either one of us.

    It is not even a bloody knife. What it contributes to the story the image is telling negligent. It doesn't take way or add to the the story. Now if it was bloody.....

    What story? Can you link the story the photo is atached to?

    I'm talking about the story the image is telling. And that nonfiction story is about a wounded soldier not the knife.

    Thats true, but again, the Reuters site shows the picture as being completely intact. I can only assume then that either the original was restored afterwards or that Reuters meant that they had simply cropped the edges, not cropped away the knife.
