Wedding photographer Fiorentini Massimo, was awarded 3rd place for photo 165226 in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2009 Q2.
- Great find in this. I love the surprising wave and the juxtaposition of the person at right looking at the passing car. It's a great "ender" to a wedding album, etc. It also has that timeless feel to it with the wave. I want to add, though, that while this is top for me, I think this category overall is fairly weak, so it's the best of a category that could be stronger.
The WPJA contest judges presented Fiorentini Massimo, a Ravenna, 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.
