Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe. View all posts by Matt Weber

It instantly reminded me of this: http://www.petapixel.com/2010/03/03/world-press-photo-disqualifies-winner/
A foot is all it takes!
I found that story very interesting! Thanks…The winning picture was so completely different than the original file, that I can understand the judges position, but not for the tiny cloning of the foot. When you crop a tiny fragment and then go grayscale and dramatize the tiny fragment as much as the person did, I’m not sure I like the “picture” winning anything at all…It does show how Photoshop has changed EVERYTHING!
