AGWPJA Q2 2011 Contest Result

by derrick

This Wednesday morning woke up receiving a piece of good news. : ) I haveĀ  won a international award for the latest AGWPJA contest under the Ceremony category. This photo is one of my personal favorite taken at Kester and Cecelia’s beach wedding at Sentosa. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for having me as their wedding photographer to make this image possible. : )
Here is the winning photo and the judge’s comment:

Ceremony Category: 18th Place
Judges Comment: This image finds compositional balance by weighting the expanse of empty space above the canopy with the myriad of details below. There is so much to see in this photo. People swimming, a lone palm tree, ships on the horizon, an attendee checking the back of his digital camera – not to mention the bride, groom and colors. And if that wasn’t enough, you have to love that Chinook helicopter dragging a flag at far-right.
