On Tuesday 8th we had the third round of the NIPA competitions for this season. This was a themed round (Street).
Our judge for the evening was Hugh Russell, chairman of CBPPU.
The entry for this round was as impressive as the first two. We had 28 mono, 43 colour and 47 PDIs (51 if I hadn’t forgotten Chelle’s), Hugh had a big job to do.
Hugh commented on all the images, mono, colour and PDI, giving good constructive feedback, explaining the positive in each image and commenting on how he thought an image could be improved, if at all.
His task on selecting his top 4 in each section was made more difficult because of the theme. Street has a very definite definition.
Many thanks Hugh for your time and effort.
Congratulations to Chelle McGaughey (new member this year) who almost had a clean sweep in the mono section and again to Robert Sergeant for his 4th place in the PDIs.
