At rollover tonight we'll which teams have won the semifinals and will face off in the Finals of DPL 3.

Everyone involved needs to be aware that RD 2 of the Finals starts at rollover tonight, and will conclude with the Challenge announced at rollover on Sunday. When the results of those two challenges (the Thursday challenge is not part of DPL) are tabulated, we will have a season winner :-)

Good luck to all combatants.

REMEMBER, THE DPL FINALS BEGIN AT ROLLOVER TONIGHT!

Given that there is a 48 hour period for validation submissions, and then a period where actual validation occurs, there exists the minor possibility that if Round 1 results are close enough that the results could change with a DQ of any image from Golden Hour or Shopping Carts (not just one submitted by a DPL team member). If this is the case I've asked my team to be prepared to shoot regardless, and would ask that the SC commit to making an announcement as soon as the results for Golden Hour and Shopping Cart have been validated.

I had the same thought. The quick turnaround is fine, but necessitates quick validation.

Why does the playoff bracket already show the results even before we know the results of the Shopping Cart challenge?

Good point.

From what we've been able to gather it's based on where we stand after Golden Hour only. We're hoping Langdon is psychic rather than it being a bit of announcer jinx.

I vote for jinx. We just like getting your hopes up so we can crush them. We're nice that way. :D

Color me surprised. ;)

I'm kind of hoping for a controversial DQ (or 2) to mix things up a bit ... and to blow up the forums ;)
... Oh, and to allow my team to advance LOL =D

It's based on Golden Hour only, it may change after Shopping Cart. It's an interim result.

Oh, I'm pretty sure it's gonna change. ;)

I don't know that it will... I haven't heard back from Langdon about our bribe, I'm worried that the hit squad may have been able to raise more than the $2.38 we raised...

We offered to take Fredo, I mean Langdon fishing if things don't go our way.

Is the math right?

Could someone please check or explain?

Thanks! :)

I don't think it is updated yet

I don't know if it's quite right making poor little brains do math this late at night. Next time, the west coast people get to do the math. :)

Actually it kept me awake until my daughter's flight got in safely, so that worked. :)

Regardless of whether my math is screwed up or not, what an amazing run. The Hit Squad is an incredible team and it was scary ummm... intimidating exciting going up against them!

Blast, Tate spoke too soon, he didn't mean against his own teammate! =D

But at least it didn't matter, my golden hour shot was higher for the week.

Congrats to Glass Eye!

As I calculate it we lost 94.4175 to 92.0342. Gotta admit that we were hoping the DQ was one of yours. ;)

Well done. Congratulations!!

And I was hoping that this entry Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1163492.jpg wasn't from your team......and it was! I knew that it was going to be trouble.

Wow, that was a very close round!

If the Playoff Brackets don't change by noon, I'm claiming victory anyway. ;)

Crossing my fingers that yakatme added a little extra motion blur in post. :)

Nope. He even entered the one where he didn't fix the distortion either. :p

Good to hear. I'd honestly hate to back in like that. Not like a vile hate, just a little one. But I'd take it. :)
