This photograph of a bride and groom at the Culver Hotel in Culver City received a Silver Award with a score of 83 at the 2014 Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) 16x20 Print, Album, and Filmmaking Annual Competition.
For the competition, I titled this image "Play on Patterns." From secondhand reports, several judges commented that they wanted to see a tighter crop on this image. I would have to argue that with a tighter crop, the interesting patterns combined with the lack of symmetry on the sides would serve to diminish this wedding photo. That being said, I'm quite happy with this score as my initial instinct was to not enter this photograph into competition. The Culver Hotel is located in Culver City, California.
