NIPA RD3 – Dereliction & Degeneration

Last night we had the NIPA round 3, which was a themed round –  Dereliction & Degeneration.

After having judged  this round at two other clubs last week, and noting that entry numbers were down considerably, I worried about our own entry on the night.

I needn’t have worried as we had an amazing entry, the best of the year with 22 mono, 21 colour and 40 PDI’s. Well done to everyone who entered.

Our judge for the evening was Kieran Murray ARPS, AIPF, DPAGB, chairman of Banbrigde Camera Club.

Kieran has been to the club on many occasions and is a long standing friend of the CPA. Not only is he more than qualified to judge this round, but this subject is right up his street so to say.

Kieran took some time previewing the images and then commented on each one individually.

He gave positive comments and suggestions on how he thought some images could be improved.

Many thanks Kieran for your time and effort.
