JUDGES COMMENTS: Great body language and emotion make this a strong as well as fun photograph. Technically, it made a huge difference in this instance to balance the strobe with ambient light and thereby provide a glimpse of the moody context for the stunt.

Perfect camera angle to capture the expressions of the people both doing the lift and those behind the groom. These faces help elevate the action itself. The gesture of his hand and the blur on his feet also help the viewer feel the lift. Great job.
