Wedding photographer Aht Yomyai, was awarded 1st place in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
- This image stood out immediately because it was different and I like the focus on the accidental tourists. I just wish the photo were framed a little cleaner and the couple on the elephant were a bit more prominent.
- One couldn't be blamed for pulling out a camera or raising a phone to get a photo of this scene. It's not something you see everyday while strolling a beach! Actually, one of the subtler aspects of this image I enjoyed so much is that most folks are simply caught unaware, as though the sight of an elephant bearing a bride simply took too long to register. But, how perfect, of course, that we view this image today by a photographer with the wherewithal to shoot the scene itself as a bigger moment than just the bride's.
