Wedding photographer Tara Arrowood, was awarded 12th place for photo 1760716 in the Symmetry category for the WPJA's 2015 Q4 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Tara Arrowood, a California, United States 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.
- This photo presents an obvious, quickly recognized symmetry, but what I enjoyed the most were the details found on each side of the dividing line between left and right. At left musicians practice. At right, a waiter prepares. Though different acts - each the same. That only adds interest to the symmetrical aspect of the image.
