North Korea officials in Photoshop disaster

NORTH KOREA - A recently released photo of North Korean officials ascending a flight of stairs to offer flower tributes at a monument appears to be doctored, as there are no visible shadows cast by the men despite the setting sun.

In response to these badly-doctored photos, discerning netizens have shared side-by-side comparisons of the manipulated photos and graphic illustrations that point out the mistakes in photo edits.
