Hard to say. I’ve noticed myself that when you compress photos, or use effects like Adobe “fill flash” it can make stuff look fake even when it’s unaltered, by making the tonal balances unnatural. My guess is that that’s what happened here, though I could be wrong.
I’ll see if I can get a comment from Reuters and report back.
