Wedding photographer Irina Lackmann, was awarded 4th place for photo 681066 in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2011 Q2 Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Irina Lackmann, a Germany 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 planning and visualizing by the photographer. It's almost a detail shot, but it tells so much more. It is the only transportation photo that used a slow shutter speed to emphasize the feeling of movement, and that movement captured that feeling of romance.
