		Eric is right, of course. In terms of this
cropping/editing/retouching debate, there's a world of difference between
reportage and fine art.  A journalist, either photographic or in writing,
has a basic purpose quite different from that of a novelist or fine arts
photographer, and so he operates under a set of rules that the artist can
safely ignore.  That is not to say, however, that what a "photojournalist"
like Cartier-Bresson created cannot be fine art; obviously it is.
