Last night we had the NIPA round 5 documentary competition.
Our judge for the evening was Martin Spackman, NIPA vice president and CBPPU member.
Martin took some time previewing the images and then commented on each one individually.
He gave positive comments and suggestions on how he thought some images could be improved.
He had 11 B&W, 14 colour and 9 PDI’s to judge, not a bad entry considering the subject.
Many thanks Martin for your time and effort.

1st) Louise Borbely – More Junk
2nd) Louise Borbely – Attitude
