NIPA Round 4 – Open

Last night we had the NIPA round 4 open competition.

Our judge for the evening was local professional photographer and BPIC member Donal McCann

Donal took some time previewing the images and them commented on each one individually.

His comments while sometimes negative always suggested ways in which the image could be improved.

He had 11 B&W, 16 colour and 31 PDI’s to judge.

His choice of placed images were as follows:

B&W (11, 1 novice)
1st) Balfour Stalker – Watch Dog
2nd) Vittorio Silvestri – Bad Eddie
3rd) Balfour Stalker – Angular Building
4th) John A Hill (N) – Those Were The Days

Colour (16, 6 novice)
1st) Paul Kavanagh – Sandra
2nd) Kieran Close – The Juggler
