Wedding photographer Rino Cordella, was awarded 9th place for photo 930236 in the Silhouettes / Shadows and Good Light category for the WPJA's 2012 Q2 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.
- Great use of the light coming in through the door and the translucence of the dress. I would love to see a color version to see how the walls, book covers and wooden shelves all give a feeling of warmth and age (I am guessing.)
