Fake photo of the DPWH officials

Last week, I saw this DPWH Fake Photo in the news, but I wasn't able to watch that part of the news because I was watching something else, and just now a friend of mine posted the Fake photo of the DPWH officials in his facebook account, and I was intrigue again, and learned what the issue is all about and now I decided to blog about it.

Last September 27, the photo above was posted in DPWH official Facebook fan page, wherein three officials of DPWH namely DPWH Metro Manila Regional Director Reynaldo Tagudando, South Manila District Engineer Mikunug Macud and DPWH Undersecretary Romeo Momo, looks like they were inspecting the damage of Roxas Blvrd. from the super typhoon "Pedring" but If you'll look closely, as if they were cropped/cut out from a different image and pasted it in the damage Roxas Boulevard.

Personally I think this photo is really fake, as a Graphic Designer the way that the photo was cropped out, it wasn't clean and the lighting of the three officials is different from the background, even if you're not an expert in photo editing, you could already tell that it is fake, look at the hair of the man on the left side, the one wearing the Polo Barong, it's so stiff.

This weekend there was a news all over the web, that an employee of the DPWH was responsible for the Fake photo of the DPWH officials, and he/she posted it on DPWH official fan page. The Photo was posted without there knowledge and permission said DPWH Undersecretary Romeo Momo. The employee who edited the photo was suspended.

Personally I think, It wasn't the employee's fault, maybe someone ask him to do that and post it in the fanpage afterwards, because If you'll analyze it properly no employee would do such a thing, and post it in there companies own fanpage. I guess the employee became the fall guy.

Because of this controversial photos, the families of the 3 DPWH officials was affected because they saw the photos on different scenarios like the last supper and many more.

here are some of the photos:
