Photohunt: "Peace" in Iraq

This week's Photohunt features what is likely more to come propaganda-esque images out of Iraq. This one is showing how great Iraq must be because there is one child in the pool. I have looked at the entire album on CNN and there are more armed US GI's than children. I think I counted three children total to over nine soldiers. It's great that there is pool, but these images are serving political purposes. A heavily gaurded and essentailly empty swimming pool does not equate to much.

Can you spot the edit?
Here is the original.

And here is the edited one.

Rules: You must clearly identify what I edited. It could be color, size, add-ons or anything, but it will only be one edit. I will keep a published tally and after six months, I will buy the winner a book of their choice or donate $25 bucks to the DNC. Also, please do not post as Anonymous. I can't reward your eye if I don't know who you are.
Running Tally:
Sid - 1

The gun looks shortened in both of them.

The top one is the original. I only edited the bottom image and it was not the gun. Good guess though!

Remember, you can win if you post under a name, rather than anonymous.

the yellow can is missing the label.

The lower photo has more light and less shadow.

Sid wins again. It was the yellow trashcan, however, it appears that there was a light difference as well that I might have mistakenly edited, so I must reward both of you.

Tally:

Sid - 2

Korea Beat - 1

Jeffery Hodges - 1

Are you buying people books?

Yep! After six months, whoever has the highest number of correct guesses gets a book of their choice. OR I will donate 25 bucks to the DNC.

You should play. It's every Sunday night.
