Wedding photographer Ben Tang, was awarded 10th place for photo 1421486 in the Creative Portrait category for the WPJA's 2014 Q2 Photography Contest.
The WPJA contest judges presented Ben Tang, a Hong Kong S.A.R., China 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.
- Near perfect composition adds romanticism to an already romantic scene. Beautiful light, the subtle (albeit powerful) color, speaks to the photographer's skill - not to mention, the apparent ability to direct a swan. It's an image best described as lovely.
