World Press Photo Disqualified
WPP disqualified this image because Stepan Rudik used the cloning tool to remove a distracting element from the image. In this case, a foot. As small as the distracting element was, in my opinion WPP made the right call. Credibility is the question here and there is just no room for cloning in photojournalism.
