Wedding photographer Sinisa Stambuk, was awarded 3rd place for photo 935691 in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 Contest.
- Nice use of shallow depth of field and the framing of the women to drive the viewer's attention to the kid. The secondary plane of activity, the men in the back, really helps.
The WPJA contest judges presented Sinisa Stambuk, a Croatia 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.
