NIPA RD2 – Open

Last night we had NIPA round 2. This was an Open competition.

Our judge for the evening was Leslie Armour from Ards CC.

Leslie had a mammoth task ahead of him with one of the biggest entries that I can remember for many years, 38 B&W, 52 Colour and 39 PDI’s, many of which were novice entries.

He took some time previewing the images and then gave some constructive comments on each one individually, suggesting how he thought some images could be improved.

Many thanks Leslie for your time and effort.

His choice of placed images was as follows:

 

B&W
1st) Vittorio Silvestri –  The Titanic from The Drawing Room
2nd) Balfour Stalker – Carlo
3rd) Eugen Baban – Flower
4th) Trevor Griffiths – Pont Alexandre
