2006 Winter Judges
- Pros: The bride's body language and the rim lighting on her face make this work so well, as does the driver's concentration. Cons: The person's hand at lower right and the excessive sun in the window do not help. Why not move to get the sun behind the driver's head?
The WPJA contest judges presented Carl Costas, a United States 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.
