Does this photo appear to be doctored to you?

Probably not "doctored" such as adding more people but simply cropped to give a desired look.

Why, does it make a difference? The UFO looks real, some aliens look faked.

There are American flags right-side up in the picture, and apparently dung-free. It must be doctored.

It looks like a long lens photo. They tend to increase the density of a crowd making it appear tightly packed.

Looks real to me. A large group of America hating morons. Luckily, thanks to photography, these unemployed terrorist lovers will be documented as such.

When you take the family out for dinner they usually have some paper and crayons for the kids to keep busy, Picture Congress in its place. HILLARIOUS! Looks like Pelosi and Murtha had thier crayon set out for this one!

I think it does. Look at the orange signs, and how they reappear. I know teenagers who could do this with Photoshop. Copy and paste the element into a file several times.

Look at the two orange signs on the left about one-third into the photo. The edge of the rear sign is visible through the sign in front of it.

Verdict: Doctored!

I go with the "angle," not doctoring per se. When don't have that many folk you shoot close to street level to make it look big. When you have a gazillion folk, you shoot from above.

Shot from a low angle with a very long telephoto lens. That technique compresses the depth of field and "stacks up" crowds. You can tell that this is what's going on from close examination of the first few rows. They look about 10 feet apart. But once you get past them, only a "sea of signs" is visible. 1,000 people perhaps? You can almost count the signs - perhaps much fewer are there. I'd presume that each one has a sign.

If the crowd was larger, a higher angle would have been used for the shot.

Looks like hundreds of "little people", holding identical yellow signs. You can't see the people, just the signs.

Yeah, it's doctored.

There should be tens of thousands since they bused them in from all over the country. That has to cost. I wonder who paid?

There was supposed to be between 5 and 8 thousand.

If you look at the flags or the unusual posters - I don't see any that are the same. The angle of the picture can make it appear there are more people.

Quick look, I think it is doctored. Look at the pattern of those black signs to the right. The left will do anything. They are unethical creeps.

if you compare the distance between the right and left side streetlights to the density of people appearing between them, you have to think that this street is perhaps 6 or 8 lanes wide.....I don't think so....

I enlarged it to 400% and found almost 2/3 of the photo
are layers of signs like a mosaic with no human faces
or hands. Easy to photoshop. My opinion... fake.

If you look at the real news photos of the protesters coming across that bridge there weren't as many small yellow signs in comparison to the various large signs. I think they've added some (small yellow signs) to the middle of the picture.

Also the street lamps look all wrong. There should be a full arc of them along the side of the bridge.

Finally all the big red (communist?) flags are missing. Either the carriers had lowered them (unlikely) or they were photoshoped out.
