I personally don’t understand what this controversy is about. I believe that photojournalism is not about how saturated the photography is… I don’t see big difference between both of those photographs (original file and published on WPP website)… and I don’t understand why anyone has some problem with this photo… it’s very small difference.
The funny part is that someone commented under this photos… that at such contests would like to see raw images… it would be interesting because in raw all photos are in color … so … following this idea… converting to black and white wouldn’t be allowed anymore? and how this would be ever possible …
