Wedding photographer Rino Cordella, was awarded 6th place for photo 887176 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2012 Q1 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Rino Cordella, a Lecce, 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.
- Very dramatic lighting.
- Like some of my other selections in this category, this one is a beautiful photographic response to a place. The event is almost secondary to the mood created by the light. Nicely seen.
