An "accident"? A "slip"? Are you serious? The guy was an idiot of the highest order! If he did not know that a 3-year-old could see his very poor cloning on the smoke repeating the pattern about 10 times then he's about the stupidest photographer on the planet! Removing dust? Yeah... right. Give me a break. This guy was trying to embellish the smoke and apparent damage to the area and that's all there is to it. He adjusted the contrast too! And who at Reuters did not see the obvious cloning pattern when the shot was cleared for publication? And what about the newspapers that printed it? THOSE photo editors did not see it before it went to press?

There's a whole littany of people down the line on this shot that all need to be fired for either passive complicity or abject stupidity.
