NIPA Rd 3 – Book or Song Title

Round 3 of the NIPA Interclub Competition was the first themed round of the season, with images representing a book or song title. Entries had to include the book title and author or the song title and artiste respectively. Themed rounds always provide a challenge and make us think outside the box, getting away from the more usual types of images that we enter in the open rounds.

Martin Spackman ARPS of Westcourt Camera Club was our very worthy judge for the evening, and as he examined each image the title and author/artiste was read out for his consideration. Martin commented on every image, giving his opinion both on the image itself and on whether or not he felt it met the theme. For example, of the 19 mono images, Martin felt that only 10 had hit the spot with their theme. Thank you for your time and expertise, Martin, always good to see you at CPA.
