Do we really need photos of children fighting?

Doesn't Pixoto allowing photos as such promote violence amongst children?

that looks like martial arts, i wouldn't consider it violence
In asian cultures its normal to train a child in family style martial arts

He did it the correct way, one image is in Babies and Children and the edited image is in Digital Art. So this is allowed.

he is a wizard with composite.... got to say.. I am impressed with his abilities... I watched his video on how he does it...and checked out his facebook page.. I actually am enjoying his images but also know there is 'trickery'' lol involved.. what you see is not necessarily what it was..... but whether they should be considered dups or not... I dont think so.. not anymore so than other similar photos we see all the time.. at least he is changing backgrounds and making changes to the composite.. not just cropping it differently... I didnt notice when I clicked on it.. but he does have them in the correct category doesnt he?

He has a Youube Video on this EXACT picture that shows us all how he does it...But then the video was compressed for time, I believe, as he clicks in it so fast, a beginner, like me, would not be able to really understand just 'how' he did it...The YouTube video was posted in another thread and this picture is the results of his work...The original picture was nothing like this...

He's posted a similar shot of the same two boys with a football, my guess is one is a composite, maybe even both.

The video is actually without the sticks, just the same two kids using their arms to fight...BUT it shows how he change the background to make the setting look as though it was in a jungle...the kids actually have a stone wall behind them in the original photo...His FB page shows the photo of the two boys with the sticks, in front of the same stone wall. It is not a shot taken in a jungle.

Yes, it IS a composite, as I mentioned the YouTube Video shows how he ADDS the background and the water splash and does a lot of adjustments to the photo...He calls it, SIMPLE manipulation... :)

He is GOOD at it!

If you would watch all the changes he makes, I think one would wonder if this should really be allow to complete with a simple photo... :P
