Team #8, Team Eminence, is looking to fill it's team. If you would like to participate, and havn't been asked to sign up yet, please PM me. I need 6 people.

I don't care if you have ribbons. I don't care what your score average is. I don't care if you are a newbie or a vet here at DPC. I only care that you care about your photography and love what you do and what you enter. My only other stipulation is that you are committed to following WPL through to its finish, and that you have fun with it!

Hope to hear from you! I will take the first 6 to email me and in that order!

Thank you!!

Thank you, and in return, had I known more about Team Suck when it first started, I would be a member of Team Suck, if I qualified! LOL...Sounds like a bunch of fun!

Nahhh, it's only an illusion. LOL..It's only been recently that I have upped my game to 6+ shots. My overall average is a 5.4 and I still suck. No ribbons. :)

Thanks a lot. I really liked that shot and am amazed it came out as well as it did considering how cold it was and handheld. Glad to be aboard. When does the competition actually start?

Yeah, its a great shot, especially under those conditions!!

Ok, so as to the competition, let me get the actual site stats and rules from the other thread so I can add it to this one. This way you can read all of what is happening first hand from Southern Gentlemen as the season begins. I do believe it is beginning mid June sometime.

I'll be back with that info.

Here is the thread with the WPL2 information on it, along with links.

For those that didn't know, there were to be draft leaques and set teams. Due to the low amount of people signing up for the draft pool so the draft leaque could make their picks, it is now all set teams and the draft leaques may now recruit to set up their teams. So as you are reading that thread, you will notice those changes were made recently and that is why Team #8 (originally a draft leaque) is now recruiting.

BUT hurry, cause the slots are filling fast! We also have a GREAT team so far with very honorable photographers who are passionate about their craft. If you are, please let me know so I can add you on as well!

3 slots available!

I believe it runs for something like 10 - 12 weeks, and for the challenges that are listed on DPC. I'm still gathering the details, but there is a WPL1 as well. If you see that thread, you may find more information as well. But most of us are awaiting the actual ruleset. The best thing to do is plan to enter challenges for the next 10- 12 weeks or so. I don't believe it begins until after June 18th.

That leaves ONE spot and I have two emails waiting for me. I feel AWFUL that I don't have more spots now!~~~~~~Let me go see who the next in line is so I can announce the official Team Eminence.

Banmorn, there is also another team that just advertised in forum. I'm not sure I will have an open spot, I am SO sorry!

THREAD CLOSED NOW

We have our team and I am happy to announce the members of Team Eminence in this order:

Espy (Captain)
DAWAR
cresus
MacClavey
cutlassdude70
MrXpress
GreenGiant

WELCOME aboard gang, and let's all do our best to kick butts~~~!!! BUT, above and beyond all, the main objective is to just have FUN in ALL the challenges! Everyone is a winner when you enter what you love, so there are no real losers at all. Let's be gracious to all winners, and if those winners are Team 8, lets be modest in how we appreciate our congrats as well!

May the best team win~!

More will be posted as I learn it, and watch the main WPL2 board for our teams names to be added. Anything I learn that I believe you may find benefictial, I will start a thread written to Team Eminence, or just PM each of you separately.

Talk more as time grows near~!

MY best to you all!

Great sounds like a blast.
05/15/2006 06:24:39 PM · #23
Thank you Greengiant, I am sure it will be.

I just wanted to say one more thing before challenges begin sometime at the end of June or beginning of July:

I chose #8 for the slot because that is the month my son was born in.

I chose Eminence because it means:

1. A position of great distinction or superiority
2. A person of high station or great achievements.

I believe that everyone who even enters a challenge is a winner because it shows your willingness to put forth your passion for the craft we all love. Anyone who puts forth their best efforts for a team is also a winner - there are no losers in dignity, integrity, and effort. In that, it shows great distinction, superiority in stamina, and a person of great achievement, NO MATTER anyone's score. Winning, in the traditional sense, is only a bonus. The main objective is to just have fun with it and to give others a reason to do their best works is the objective of a contest. Contests are always healthy in that regard. We learn much from them.

And lastly I just want to say that I appreciate all of you for joining Team Eminence. We have a wonderful team and a team to be surely proud of.

Banmorn, I have asked on the WPL2 thread that someone pick you up. I am sure you will be. You have a wonderful portfolio and one to surely be proud of. Unfortunately you were one person too late in coming aboard Team 8, as I chose by first come first serve basis. But don't fret. Someone will PM you soon, I am sure of it. Many teams aren't filled yet, and some are just waiting for the full rule set. My best to you, and to you all!!

You will hear from me again soon!

Espy

Excellent words! :) I couldn't agree more with your outlook on winners. Whatever the outcome of the challenges, I'm sure that all of us will learn a great deal. If there's anything I've learned about DPC in my short time here, it's that there's pretty-much no better place to learn and share knowledge with others with a passion for photography. [cheers]Here's to Team Eminence! :)[/cheers]
05/15/2006 07:17:54 PM · #25
OH, that is wonderful cutlassdude70! BUT, be it DPC or anywhere else there are challenges, and there are some truly awesome other sites as well, learning and fun is the key!!

Ok, here are the latest words for when we will begin from SouthernGentelman:

July 2, 2006 to make sure we have all teams ready and to give people a break. If all teams are ready before then we may move it up to the middle of June.

So get your game faces on!

Make sure your cameras are loaded with a fresh battery, the correct date, and shine up those lenses!! :)
