Wedding photographer Bartosz Jastal, was awarded 8th place for photo 689346 in the Details (Found) category for the WPJA's 2011 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Bartosz Jastal, a Poland 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.
- The hand reaching up releasing the balloons adds a nice bit of tension to the moment. Might be effective to later pair a follow-up photo of a postmarked card with this one.
