Wedding photographer Ettore Colletto, was awarded 8th place for photo 1753196 in the Other Vendors category for the WPJA's 2015 Q4 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Ettore Colletto, a Messina, Italy 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.
- Three primary elements work together in this image, the waiters, dutifully in command of their service, the shadows spilling across stone and the castle-like structure hinting of royalty. Thus composition, light and subject all work together throughout this fine photo.
