coming from a graphic designer. doesnt looked shopped to me at all, and I can spot PS from 100 metres. haha.
Looks like a genuine photo, and I highly doubt that is a photo taken recently. Probably just a stock photo.
all of the angles are correct, shadows are correct. the hair glow is just due to the sun. the sunglasses dont look placed on his head, just very very clean.

Yeah, noticed that too, but judging from one of the replies to the article...
So it looks like the photo used in the story was a stock photo and the wrong one. Which has been indirectly pointed out by a couple ats members, the soldiers in the picture are not from the navy.
So I'm thinking its not so much that CNN is hiding anything in the photo, its just they suck and are lazy and just through in a stock photo. It was of other soldiers not even related to the story of the missing sailors, and the family members of those soldiers in the CNN article photo got upset because they thought it was their family member missing and or dead. Pretty sad CNN
