    LOL Easily done.

    They did screw up the photoshopping in that they left artifacts that called into question the authenticity of the images, which has now called into question their openess and integrity about everything. I get that. I get that they screwed up in that regard. And I'm not trying to say BP is innocent of everything.

    However, I don't think they should be unfairly demonized either. Seeing the originals and edited ones side by side makes me say, "Eh, so what?" I just didn't see anything that was misrepresented in relation to the activities in question.

    I agree for the most part, but the water in the retouched one is a little too over-the-top blue, dontcha think?

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    When they said "control tower" I was thinking, "I'm a pilot and I've never seen a control tower that looked like that. That looks like the bridge on a ship." Ok, glad I'm not going crazy! LOL

    Ditto. Also, "since when is the use of a checklist in-flight considered unrealistic?"

    IT looks like they raised the blue tones completely throughout. The sky looks a deeper and brighter blue, as does the blues in the control panel, and the entire thing seems to have been brightened. May account for it.

    Trying to make a better photo or trying to make the water seem a nice crisp clean blue? We report, you decide!
