"From the earliest days of the art form... photography has been fertile ground for fakery...
Photo Fakery is the first book on the history of all types of photographic fakery and manipulation...
hundreds of photographs that were contrived or altered, often succeeding greatly in their fakery by playing a part in history...
benefits and dangers of doctored photos and the many problems raised for the legal profession...
with examples never before seen by the general public, Photo Fakery is for anyone who wants to be a savvy media observer."
"Dino Brugioni, formerly one of the CIA's senior photo interpreters..."
sounds fun, might get one...

"..we can tell it is a montage because of its depth of field. When objects both near and far, are in perfect focus it is a good bet that at least two photos were used in its creation"
This image immediately came to mind

The final result should be compared to that of showing a landscape in focus, with the moon in the sky background also in focus. Those effects do not necessarily require a montage. (Not to imply the ISS picture is real, of course).

Georges Seurat - La Parade (1889) - detail showing pointillism technique.
Instead of painting outlines and shapes with brush strokes and areas of colour, pointillism builds up the image from separate coloured dots of paint. From a distance, the dots merge and appear to be areas of shaded tones, but the colours have an extra vibrancy from the juxtaposition of contrasting dots.
Due to the limitations of printing and video displays, the true effect can only really be seen looking at an original painting.

Most unfortunate. Any known alternatives?
ps Simon/Hoi, why not offer to host a mirror service? Many users of this site might be willing to subscribe to support this
