NIPA Competition – RD5 (Portraiture)

Last night we had the NIPA final round of the year competition, RD5 – Portraiture.

This was judged by Damian McDonald ARPS, chairman of CBPPU and regional organiser for the RPS.

We had a poor entry in terms of numbers, by CPA standards, 8 mono, 18 colour and 12 PDI’s

Damian gave a thorough and fair critique of each image, detailing lighting, composition, the difficulty of hands in portraits and over sharpening of entire images.

Thanks you Damian for your time and expertise.

1st) The Boxer – Vittorio Silvestri
2nd) Pretty Ginger – Vittorio Silvestri
3rd) Leroy – Vittorio Silvestri
