    Talking Watch the birdy: Cameraman fired for fake pigeon

    A Chinese photographer has apologized for his "bad behavior" forging an award-winning picture of pigeons, Xinhua news agency said on Monday.

    Zhang Liang, a former photographer for the Harbin Daily newspaper, admitted that he added a pigeon to a photo, using Photoshop software, which showed pigeons receiving bird flu vaccine shots from medical workers.

    Adobe Photoshop is probably a "photographers" dream, doesn't even need to take the pictures

    The picture looks like a fake. The background looks like Moscow and the person is Asian.

    Peace,

    In February this year, an award-winning photographer, Liu Weiqiang, admitted he faked a photo showing more than 20 Tibetan antelopes roaming peacefully under a railway bridge along the Qinghai-Tibet railway where a train was roaring past.

    You can see the faked antelopes here:

    They should apply for a marketing job in Adobe

    He copied the pigeon in the top right corner of his photo and pasted it in the top left corner.

    http://danscomp.net/AustDayPic.jpg this is one of my favorite fakes.

    My grandpa and other family members were sharing it via email I opened it in notepad and found the photoshop tag.

    I never told them it was a fake. (wasn't done by me)
    I could tell you a joke about UDP. But I'm not sure you would get it!
