Somewhat harsh in my opinion.

Stepan Rudik, winner of the 3rd prize story in the Sports Features category of the World Press Photo 2009 contest, has been disqualified from the contest for removing a foot from the background of one of the photographs in his winning story.

"Your website gave information about disqualification of my material at the World Press Photo contest. I do NOT argue the decision of the jury."

"At the same time, I would like to present the original photograph, from which it is clear that I haven’t made any significant alternation nor removed any important informative detail. The photograph I submitted to the contest is a crop, and the retouched detail is the foot of a man which appears on the original photograph, but who is not a subject of the image submitted to the contest. I believe this explanation is important for my reputation and good name as a reportage photographer."

Rudik granted permission to publish the photo which he says is the one that forced the disqualification. The unaltered version is shown, 1st, and cropped to show the background foot detail in it, 2nd. Beneath that is the version Rudik indicates he submitted to the World Press contest.

It does highlight however that a fairly ordinary photo can be made to look good with some creative cropping and adjustments in photoshop.

Good job really as my photo's are usually shite but I'm handy with photoshop. Laughs out loud

Cheeky fucker.

I had to take pic at work the other day of one of our teams and one of the girls (who has an extremely high opinion of herself) came over to look as I worked on it in Photoshop.

"Oh my god that's a terrible picture of me"

"Well I'm pretty good with photoshop but you can't polish a turd".

She wasn't impressed.
