Wedding photographer Samo Rovan, was awarded 10th place for photo 1593671 in the Other Vendors category for the WPJA's 2014 Q4 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Samo Rovan, a Slovenia wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
- I like how the man at far right has been cropped so he becomes a strong leading line into and correspondingly out of the image. I think this kind of framing also works to create a visual tension that helps create feeling for the vigorous work of sweeping.
