Here is the report from Ballynahinch Camera Club for Thursday, 3 February. At this week’s meeting of the club, the images which had been submitted for Round 4 of the NIPA competition were displayed, critiqued and marked by external judge, William Allen, DPAGB, BPE3*, from City of Belfast Camera Club, and the results are shown below. This was a themed round, entitled Human Impact on the Environment. This had proved to be one of the most difficult themes to date. We can all think of rubbish dumps and other obvious blots on the landscape, but getting images which portray human impact in an visually meaningful way is not as easy as it sounds. William did an excellent and very consistent job in choosing the best images to represent the theme.

Congratulations to all the winners and good luck with these images going forward to NIPA Round 4 . Also congratulations to those members who enabled the club to attain 5 stars in Round 3 and remain in 3rd place in the NIPA League ie. Alan Chowney, John McCullough, Brian Shields and Terry Hanna.
Next week member, Frances Price, will give a talk entitled Chasing Statues, about her recent time spent as a volunteer photographer for Art UK.
