Spot the Difference

These two photographs of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il's funeral procession were taken only seconds apart, but the top photo was taken by Japanese press outlet Kyodo News, and the bottom one was provided to journalists by North Korea’s state news agency. North Korea is no stranger to photo manipulation; in this case it serves only the purpose of making the procession look more "perfect." The details are at the New York Times photography blog.
