NIPA Rd 2 – Open

On Tuesday 24th October we had Round 2 of the NIPA Interclub Competition, which this season is sponsored by Wex Photo Video. Our judge for the evening was Hugh Rooney ARPS from Bangor & North Down Camera Club.

The entry consisted of 26 mono, 36 colour and 36 PDIs, and Hugh took the time to comment on each entry, offering advice on how to improve the image where he could. It was a very strong entry and Hugh had his work cut out selecting his top four images, especially in the colour print section which was of an especially high standard. Many thanks Hugh for your time and effort, as always.

His choice of placed images was as follows:

Mono

1st) Paul Hanley – Ascending
2nd) Paul Hanley – Candidplatz
3rd) Jim Walker – Samuel Beckett Bridge
4th) William Allen – Zebra
N) William Allen – Zebra

Colour

1st) Paul Hanley – Westfriedhof
2nd) Louise Borbely – Red Dragon
3rd) Paul Hanley – Lehel
4th) William Allen – Classical Beauty
N) William Allen – Classical Beauty

PDI

2nd) Vittorio Silvestri – Glacier Beach
3rd) Vittorio Silvestri – Fungi Study
